Haha! Wow, poohb, I never knew that! Interesting.
I don't really know if its a good thing to really hate
Valentine's Day. I find it hard to hate a day dedicated to love and kindness. :\ But, I don't like people doing stuff for me on it. It all seems far too contrived for me and I think because everyone says we should
send chocolates and fluffy teddy bears holding hearts to each other, that makes me not want to do it: why should I show my love to someone because everyone tells me to? I'll do it when I bloody well feel like it thank you!
Also, it is completely sell-out and the gifts don't seem very personal. Why should I get all romantic and wobbly-legged over some reproduced gift that someone (usually) hasn't really even thought about? :\ If it's on the shelves under a sign that says "For your lovely valentine!" it doesn't mean I actually want it.
