13 Reasons Why Valentine’s Day Should Be Scrapped
1. It’s not even a real holiday. We still go to work on February 14, don’t we?
2. No one really wants the pressure to buy someone a present on a faux holiday.
3. Why celebrate a "holiday" that could not even accurately pinpoint which Catholic saint's day it is? (there are actually THREE St. Valentines being honored on February 14, so take your pick.)
4. All the motels/hotels are fully-booked, therefore getting some nookie on that supposedly most romantic of days is a far-fetched idea. Unless you’re adventurous enough to have sex on a bridge.
5. In my part of the globe, February 14 is the time couples are subjected to cheesy concerts filled with love songs from has-been artists. (Air Supply, anyone?)
6. Overpriced dinners in restaurants.
7. Extremely expensive flowers. It’s tantamount to highway robbery, and these flower shops know it.
8. Having to pay top dollar for a greeting card carrying words that are sickeningly saccharine-sweet enough to raise your blood sugar to diabetic levels.
9. Mushy, run-off-the-mill romantic comedies made just to make a guy take a girl to watch it on V-Day.
10. As a kid, I thought that that shape symbolizing the heart, which is all over the place in the run-up to Valentine’s Day, is what the human heart really looked like. I’ll never forgive whoever thought that one up.
11. There’s something annoying about how all these women walk all over town on Valentine’s Day carrying flowers their partners have just given them, like they're some kind of badge of honor or something. Ever heard of a vase?
12. With all the hype that surrounds Valentine’s Day, nothing can make you feel more of a loser than having to spend it alone.
13. Stupid articles ranting about why Valentine’s Day should be scrapped.
