Things I Hate About Valentine’s Day

0214162248-00

Valentine’s Day is that mushy holiday that I’ve never really cared for (basically because I’ve never had a reason to). It just comes and it goes. I was going to wait until next Valentine’s Day to publish this but since it has been stowed away in my drafts for a while, I thought I’d publish it now.

Here are ten things I dislike about this annual celebration, said to have originated way back in the ancient Roman times, from a number of saints named “Valentine” (who the actual one it’s named after is an extraordinary debate):

  1. It’s such a manufactured holiday
  2. No one cares about the single guys
  3. People with diabetes are the minority
  4. What the hell is a Cupid?
  5. We spend BILLIONS on worthless Valentine cards that get thrown away
  6. The one day of the year where couples sweep their troubles under the rug, and then pull them out again the next day.
  7. You forget about the credit card debt from Christmas and buy that expensive ring for your spouse.
  8. Like Halloween, it comes and goes really quickly and has no lasting memory
  9. All the fake, empty “Happy Valentine’s Day” greetings you’ll get at the office.
  10. It doesn’t make February any less boring.

This is a first in a series of “Things I Hate” posts.
