I really don’t understand people who dislike Valentine’s day. Everyone who’s all bitter about it goes around calling it “Singles Awareness Day”. Seriously, quit complaining.
My strong stance on this issue is not, though you might think, derived from the fact that I’m currently in a stable, long term relationship. Granted, that’s an inseparable part of it, but it is far from the primary reason.
Most of my Valentine’s day cards/candy came from my mom/family, and my grandmas.
There, I said it.
There’s too much focus on the romantic aspect of Valentine’s day, which is a total shame. Why would you limit the scope of a holiday that combines the giving of presents and chocolate on one day to such a narrow populous?
Let me repeat: presents, and chocolate.
It’s like Christmas and Easter had an illegitimate child-holiday.
I don’t understand how you can not like that.
No one cares.
Get off your butt and send your mom a card, or do something nice for one of your close friends.
If enough people do that, then maybe Valentine’s day could really reach its true potential as the secular holiday to end all secular holidays.
