Reader comment on item: Hating Valentine's Day
in response to reader comment: Hating Valentine's Day

Submitted by meena (United States), Feb 16, 2006 at 09:47

Why can't people celebrate any event. What is wrong in celebrating a festival. I am a hindu and grew up in a neighborhood where we had both christians and muslims. I love Christmas and Ramdan. My friends belonging to Islam and Christianity would give me a sample of the best traditions celebrated by their families during their popular holidays. I would not like to see a world without Ramdan or Christmas or Diwali.

Wish to God, that people would get the proper perspective on Valentine's day. Celebrate any festival and all festivals.

People should be allowed to celebrate any day they consider appropriate.

Cheers to the voices of those standing for people's freedom!
