Valentine - Richard Hawley #Celebrem-ho?

Arribat el dia 14 de febrer, i arribat l'eterna debat sobre si és bo celebrar el Dia de Sant Valenti a Catalunya ... si ja tenim un dia "de l'amor", el de Sant Jordi, per que importar una festa anglo-saxona/americana?

Ja sabeu el que penso, perque sempre dic lo mateix (!): per mi, com més festes, millor. La vida ja és prou dura per anar retallant festes!! Seria diferent si vulguessen eliminar les festes catalanes per imposar unes altres, però no és el cas. Clar, com que no sóc tonto, també entenc les reticencies a les festes americanes. Son un example pur i dur del consumisme brutal que domina al mon occidental. Aixo si que em fa rabia, però, total, és un joc que només entres si vols. Jo, sent de Yorkshire, mai he pensat que cal gastar diners per mostrar el meu amor, je je :) I aixi celebrem el Dia dels Enamorats a baix-cost:)

I quina manera millor que amb el Gran Richard Hawley - de Sheffield !! I un gran video!!

Saint Valentine's Day is usually questioned over here in Catalonia as, in a sense, it is an imported celebration, when the Catalans have their own Day of Loved Ones, in April. I suppose one reason for some people's reluctance to celebrate it is this, the worries that they may eventually lose their traditions, but I don't think it's the case. Plenty of room for another "festa" in the calendar!!

Another complaint - and this one I do agree with - is that it seems more like a celebration of Consumerism, rather than Love. Being from Yorkshire, that's a point I can see, and refuse to go along with - a Yorkshire man don't need to spend his hard-earned savings to show his love. We have other ways .... (and cheaper ones).

Here's the Great Richard Hawley, from Sheffield by the way! (and a cool video!!)
