Valentines Day... Singles' Awareness Day

I know Valentines Day was sooo two days ago but bear with me and my thoughts on this overrated and ridiculous holiday (yeah, I don't like it). Valentines Day is the holiday of chocolate, red, pink, fluffy teddy bears, gaudy hearts and love.  WalMart is literally iced in red and pink decor from as soon as the Christmas holiday is over to the actual Valentines Day.  For some reason every other business thinks they must follow WalMart's "standard" and also douse themselves in the red and pink standard.  By the time Valentines Day has actually arrived one is so sick of chocolate, red, pink, fluffy teddy bears, gaudy hearts and love that they are seriously considering celebrating Singles' Awareness Day with salad, blue, green, slimy frogs, brains and common sense. 
Actually, that doesn't sound too bad.  Salad- check, blue- check, green- not my favorite but it's okay so check, slimy frogs- again not my favorite but anything is better then fluffy teddy bears, brains- Oh yeah!, and common sense- most definitely.  Singles' Awareness Day here I come. :)

  1. Well, I can see that you aren't one for the romance are you? So what is you opinion on other holidays like St. Patrick's' day or Dingus day?

  2. St. Patrick's day is also way over comercialized.
    Dingus day? I have never even heard of that one.
    Romance is over rated. ;)

  3. You have never heard of Dingus Day?!! You'll have to get on Wikipedia and search Dingus(or Dyngus)Day and look in the section for Central and Eastern Europe. It really is quite entertaining.

  6. Are you against all holidays? Are there any that you like or approve of?

  7. Holidays I approve of- Christmas (though it is way to overcomercialized), Easter (Also overcomercialized, Thanksgiving (Not as badly overcomercialized because of Christmas), and Reformation Day(NOT Halloween). While most of those are more or less overcomercialized there is actually a reason for those holidays.

  8. What about the 4th of July?

  9. I guess the 4th of July is okay. It has never been that big to me personally, though I do the historical importance of it. :)

  11. You're not very American are you?

  12. Ouch! I like the above holidays because I have special memories of spending time with family on those days and they are probably the more important holidays. My family never really does anything for the 4th of July and the Presidents Day is just an excuse for the public schooled kids to get out of school. And yes I am American!!!

  13. We don't do anything for presidents day (Naturally), but in FL we always had a parade for the Fourth. And by American I mean the stereo-typical entertainment centered American. I was saying that you do not fall into that stereo-type.

  14. Oh, okay. I guess I can take that as a complement. :)
