If you wouldn’t go spend hundreds of dollars on pointless stuff for your loved one any other day, why do it on valentine’s day? After all, it is just another day. Waiting until this day just to do something that you have the power to do any other day is useless.
Did you know that valentine's day has the highest suicide rates? Yes it's true and that's why i'm saying valentine's day is a waste of a holiday. Other than that valentine's day also is bad because of traffic, the fear of being rejected, and it’s a huge marketing ploy to sell lots of candy or other gifts.
Now let's talk about the insanely bad traffic on this horrid day. The traffic is mainly bad because all the guys forgot and were reminded by their girlfriend. So they all go and it’s super crowded from everyone else who forgot.
I just think you don't need a girlfriend or a wife for valentines day. I think it's just marketer's making excuses that we need to buy things for our boyfriend's, wives, Husbands and girlfriends. That's why people who are married celebrate their wedding anniversary, what is the point in another day! People start to rate one another on how much money they have, not by how much one loves someone. Traditionally in times of the Roman Empire, in the month of February they had a festival of fertility to the goddess Faunus. We shouldn't be sending fancy gifts and the finest of wines to our love we should be celebrating peace and love in humanity.
I honestly feel nothing. No love, no happiness, no sadness, nothing. What's the point if you love not a single person? (I have 0 friends, emotionally abusive parents, am an only child, and never have been in a relationship) I've also read a fact online that says Valentine's day has the highest suicide rate compared to all the other days in the year.
This is just a way for commercial businesses to make money out of people who feel are lacking in their relationships. It also makes people who are not in relationships feel alone and unwanted, neither of these things should be supported as a holiday or whatever you want to call it
Valentines day is a day dedicated to the commercialization of love. From an anthropological standpoint, it makes love appear to be a tangible item that can be purchased or earned. Furthermore, should every day not be a day to display your love and affection to the ones you hold dear? It is making love into something that generates a profit. The flowers and candy are a non-permanent fleeting joy, perhaps speaking to the true nature of the giver, or how they feel that love should be dropped the second it turns into a burden. It is completely destroying our civilization. We will all die out because of valentines day, leaving rabbits to rule the earth once more.
I love the idea of Valentine's Day but the way companies have made it has made me hate it. They have made it into a money grabbing day about taking your money and putting it in thier pockets. I get that I may look like the same people who hate this holiday, I don't hate it, I love it. But you know companies make it worse for others. Men make your own gift for your lover, same goes for you ladies. I would rather have it as a day to share love then show love.
It enforces these gender roles even further. You have to buy all different types of things and drain your wallet. A good day could cost you a couple hundred bucks or more. But then women say there is a pay gap and they dont make as much as men. Ohhh but you arent the one spending all your money on stupid and worthless holidays are ya
It's completely one-sided towards women. It creates unnecessary stress. Restaurants, chocolate, card and flower stores gouge their customers. I don't celebrate it and if I had a partner who insisted on celebrating, I would dump her for that reason. If women are truly interested in fairness and equality, they would have to be in favor of boycotting Valentine's Day.
You could be using your money for something better in life. Save up instead of getting practically worthless paper, flowers that will die in under 5 weeks, a bear your "valentine" will get bored of in weeks, and fattening chocolate. Seriously this is coming from a cynical 13 year old.
My wife and I have never celebrated Valentines Day, and honestly i don’t know many people that do. Why in the Hell would anybody celebrate this day? I guess elementary school age kids do, that seems to be the only age group that really cares ab it, well...Spoiled annoying women too i guess😑
Valentine's day is not a dumb holiday. It is a holiday to show how much that one person really means to you. You should not have to tell you significant other that you love them daily. This holiday is a day to show how much they truly mean to you and how greatful you are to have them in your life. Therefore, Valentine's day is not a dumb holiday.
I think it is great we have a day set aside to celebrate the spirit of love. Love is a powerful and great thing in life. We should observe it in all forms whether it is the love for a partner, friend, pet, or family member and spend sometime with them.
Valentine's Day isn't a stupid holiday, it's just overrated. The success or failure of Valentine's Day is a myth perpetuated by contemporary consumer-based industries such as florists, chocolatiers and card makers. For a couple to have a make-or-break moment on Feb. 14 is pure folly. Everyday should be Valentine's Day for couples in love.
No, Valentines day is not a stupid holiday. It is a day where everyone can share their feelings for someone that they truly care about, and to give a gift to show that person how he or she really feels towards them. It is a day for expressing your love.
