February 14th is here and the skies are colored with red roses. As is the norm, February 14th is the day people express love to those they hold dearly in their lives.
Nothing defines Valentines’ Day better than presents and those red candle-lit dinners. Prior to Valentine’s Day, the Kenyan internet is often more hilarious than any comedy show in the world as both men and women compete to share memes for or against the day.
Already a section of men, self-appointed leaders of the “Men’s Conference” has announced a two-day Men’s Conference retreat in Nyeri, where they plan to deliberate on a number of issues including petitioning the UN to do away with Valentine’s Day.
Some have already issued notices to their other half that they will be joining the President and other Kenyans at Nyayo Stadium for a National Prayer Day to curse out the demons of drought and scorching sun. They have issued apologies in advance saying they will not be available.
Then there are those men and women who have vowed that come rain, come sunshine, February the 14th is their day. Some have already planned to buy various gifts for their loved ones including flowers, a bottle of wine or champagne, shoes, and a watch, among other things.
All in all, whether going for the Men’s Conference, National Prayers at Nyayo Stadium, or taking your loved one out, the fact still remains that it is Valentine’s Day, a day of love and gifting.
