LOVE! Happy Valentine’s Day!

It is a known fact that St. Valentine’s Day is on the 14th of February every year and the theme of this celebration centers on ‘love’. Luckily, it’s a few days before my birthday and so I get to receive gifts early, feeling loved even more so at this season of sharing love.           

Many are of the opinion that Valentine’s Day is just another day that should not be given any more accolades than necessary because love should be celebrated daily. I do agree with the position that we should endeavour to make the expression of love a lifestyle ritual. However,  I understand that human beings have always done better with a bit of reminders.
I believe that the celebration of love on this special day is more of an advantage than disadvantage to the world especially among families, friendships and humanitarian causes.                    
What bigger reason could there be than for the world to be unified for any cause other than the giving of love.
‘Love’, a phenomena that captures hearts beyond biases, sentiments, religions, customs and beliefs. Read a brief history of St. Valentine’s Day here.  

Today, share and give love. Educators around the world are united on reaching one goal – which is to instill in students the love for lifelong learning. We equally understand that learning could not be permanent if it excluded sharing love.

How to share  Love.

Consider using a time when the whole family is together to share why you love one another. Give each member of your family the opportunity to share a few reasons why they love each member of the family. This makes for great conversation at the dinner table!

Hug often. The old saying that “actions speak louder than words” could not be truer when it comes to showing love and affection. Fortunately, there are endless ways we, as parents, relatives and caregivers show our love every day. In the process, we are strengthening the bond we have with children and promoting their sense of self and confidence.

Help a child through school. Find a kid in your neighbourhood whose life you could change. Support their education in any measure you can. You would be contributing to reducing the number of over 10 million out-of-school children in Nigeria.

So give love…
