My feelings about Valentine's Day can be summed up in a single syllable: "meh." I've never been particularly interested in observing it and find it weird how personally many single people take it. I mean, no one complains about not being in a boat crossing the ocean on Columbus Day, why feel bad about not being in a relationship on Valentine's Day? I just don't get it.
Plus, I find the pink and red decorations used for this holiday rather garish. Though I suppose all the blood and guts coloration is appropriate since VD was originally the celebration of martyrdom. (Super romantic, right?)
Anyway, for me, Valentine's Day just means the day that happens to be my mom's birthday. Well, now it also means my roommate's birthday. What're the odds of that, huh?
But seriously, folks, what's your take on VD - pointless ritualization of gift-giving and sexual reciprocity or some sort of heart-warming day for lovers? Or something else....
