Thursday, February 14, 2008, fine|
This afternoon, I went out. To my surprise, two girls stood along the street, selling red roses. I was puzzled why, but within seconds, I knew it’s February 14, Valentine’s Day today. Though it originated in a foreign country, it’s welcomed in China. Many Chinese enjoy it, especially the young people. I met young fellows holding red roses with happy expressions from time to time. Later on my way home, I joined the young guys, spending 5 yuan buying a red rose for my hubby and expecting to give him a surprise and make him happy. “If it will bring him a happy day, it’s worth buying even if it’s expensive,” I thought. I had never bought him one before, though he bought me and my daughter roses in the past few years. While I came back with a red rose in hand, I felt many puzzled eyes fixed on me. Maybe they thought I was too old to be a romatic, or maybe everyone thought it boys' duty to buy roses for girls. No matter what they thought, I didn’t care. In fact, people at my age never admit they are old. On the contrary, they think their hearts are still young even though their children are much taller than them. (Please don’t laugh at me.)
When I got home, my hubby had already been in. Before I showed him my present, he invited me to dine out, saying, “Today is Valentine’s Day. I’ll treat you to what you want.” I felt very happy, asking, “Why haven’t you bought me a red rose?” He replied, “I wanted, but it’s unconvenient for me because I drove.” Then he added, “You’ve never thought of me.” “Thank God, I’ve bought one for him, or I’ll never explain it clearly.” I thought. As I showed him the present, he had nothing to say. We had a wonderful dinner among young couples in a restaurant.
These days, more and more people are interested in foreign festivals. Thus, discussions have begun. Some are for it while others are against. The way I see it, as long as it can make us happy, I’ll never care where it comes from. Life is short. We should spend every day happily. Of course, I value our custom festivals more.
By the way, happy Valentine's Day guys.:)
