One of the most annoying things about Valentine’s is how unspontaneous it is. Everybody knows that when it’s planned, it’s not fun or special anymore. Just like how your birthday party and Christmas gift from your mom aren’t special anymore because you knew they were coming. Besides, couples should already be celebrating their own Valentine’s Day on other days. Except for Valentine’s Day itself of course, that’s not allowed.
A very hateful task that one must do during V-day is the bothersome chore of getting your significant other a gift. Buying a gift for someone you love to make them happy? Or worse, making them something. It’s just too much to ask! In fact, it has become an obligation to make your special someone happy at your expense. It’s enough to turn St.Valentine over in his grave (as well as your stomach).
Finally, the winning element that crowns Valentine’s Day as the most wretched, the most dreadful holiday: you remember you can’t join in on the fun. You remember that you are cursed. You remember that-gulp!-you are single. Better known as S.A.D. Day also known as Singles Awareness Day (a bit redundant, really), it is a day where singles look on disgustedly as the girl walks along with a teddy bear and flowers in one arm and the boy responsible in the other. There are enough roses in the halls to drench the school in red. And all those pastries! They half-heartedly nibble at their own half-hearted cookies and sniff “How dare they express their love for each other! In front of me! Don’t they know that
I’m forever alone?”
Day? Let’s get rid of all those other pesky holidays, too! Who needs Christmas when we have 364 other days to give to the people we love? Every day should be Mothers’ and Fathers’ Day. And Fourth of July? Forget about it. Let’s have barbecues every day and fireworks every night, while we stuff our faces with some turkey and mashed potatoes. Then after that, maybe we could go trick-or-treating.
