Valentine's Day... Dyslogistical Holiday

In 10 days time, a monumental annual event will occur. I say it's a complete waste of time, money, and effort.

A day were there are crappy tasting heart candies, a day were you indulge for no reason. A day some would feel lonely.

I think you would know this as Valentine's Day.

Now there is a whole history, with a priest that was martyred for the love of others. Why do we say 'for the love of God?!' when we could say 'for the love of Valentine?!'.

I'm not going to get into the whole history, but I just wanted to extract what the exact the logic. What people have turned this day into.

Valentine was a pretty passionate guy, and at first, I'm sure this day was to honor his braveness or benevolence. But now its just a day when people show more love for each other, or more so, lust. They also  seduce themselves with high sugar consumption and cheesy greeting cards. Many movies are based off it too.

The logic that I see behind this, is a day to worship someone more than you usually do. Now that's just plain stupid.

You should treat your partner like royalty every day. Or just don't treat them like crap and treat them nicely on this day.

Maybe the sentiment behind this day is cute and all, but still, shouldn't you live like this whenever you want and not just this one day taking out of this year?

My point is, be romantic everyday, or whenever you desire. Just take this day to honor St.Valentine.

What do you think? Do you enjoy Valentine's Day? Please feel free to comment below! :)

  1. We do not recognize VD in this household. Total Hallmark Holiday. I don't really like any holidays. One year I forgot my own birthday.
