Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Stores are filled with the cheesy things that everyone loves for this day. Bright colored cards, sweet candies, and giant balloons. Everyone has their own way of celebrating this day whether it be with someone special or Netflix and a tub of ice cream by their selves.
“I’m all for the candy. But I think there needs to be something for the single people out there,” said someone who asked to stay anonymous.
“It doesn’t mean anything to me. It’s an excuse for couples to act more “lovey dovey” than normal and I just don’t see the point in this holiday,” Erika Maes, a sophomore at PCHS said.
“A distraction, I suppose. Not for me, of course, but for those around me. I do not have a significant other, so I have no reason to partake in this holiday,” Mario Coco, a sophomore at PCHS said.
“Valentine’s Day to me is about getting together with your girlfriend or boyfriend on this day and just hanging out together. This day is about making your partner happy and just letting them know how much they mean to you. This day to me means that even if y’all fought at a point then this day is basically for you to make up for it and just make each other happy,” Ryan Davis, another sophomore at PCHS said.
“To me? Valentine’s day to me means showing your significant other how much you care about them and how much you love them,” Brooklynn Cancino, a student at PCHS said.
“For me, Valentine's Day is a day in which you can show those you care about just how much you appreciate them. The positivity of Valentine's Day is something I appreciate about it most.” Brian Dilka, the principal of PCHS said.
The 'Buzz' on Valentine’s Day continues as this special day arrives. Whether people do or don’t like this certain day, it still happens every year. So PCHS students and staff, what does Valentine’s Day mean to you?
