Ah Yes

Valentines day is THE WORST day to work in a chocolate store especially one owned by a nazi boss. Last yeah i had the pleasure to experience this and it was quite the event. i dipped probably two hundred strawberries that day arg sorry tangent this wasn't what i was going to write about.

The reason that i dislike valentines day is not because i have never shared it with someone and it is not because i seem to be perpetually single. The reason i dislike this holiday is because it is a crappy way to make up for all the unromantic things your respective lover has done in the past year. If people were actually good husbands/wives/boyfriends/girlfriends valentines day wouldn't be anything special because they would treat their significant other's extraordinarily all year round its like christmas.....sort of anyhow that is my take and i do realize ou can't buy someone flowers and take them out to dinner EVERY day of the year but yeah

yup... I agree...

that's why me and andrew aren't doing anything tonight... we do nice things for each other all the time... why limit it to one day a year...

Most holidays like Valentines are an excuse for avoiding the issue the rest of the year. Furyouhin made a good example of Thanksgiving being the time of year many kitchens make a big deal out of giving turkey to the homeless so they could avoid the issues the rest of the year. It's february now, black history month, another excuse for not facing the issues the rest of the time (and why they don't teach any history before the 19th century?)

Anyway, holidays in general tend to be full of BS. But it's part of our society to choose events and generalizations and apply specific dates to remember them on so the machine of society can function in an orderly and constructed manner.
