Worship parents or celebrate Valentine’s Day?

Parents Worship DayThe celebration of “Parents Worship Day” evidently started in 2012 as an “alternative” to Valentine’s Day. It was begun apparently to appease the anti-love fanatics and conservative traditionalists in India and other eastern regions who see Valentine’s Day as undermining parental authority, especially as concerns the concept of arranged/forced marriages.

What happens if your parents are secularists, atheists or freethinkers who are not believers in worship? Will you go against their views by worshipping them? Would that not be an act of disobedience and disrespect?

In any event, HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!! May you ALWAYS be with the people YOU YOURSELF CHOOSE out of LOVE.

I’m a parent. Now worship me and follow my advice to dump arranged/forced, loveless marriages.
