A waste of a day

By Kaity Sample Posted February 1, 2014

The day of love is approaching quickly, and boxes of chocolate are being sold by the dozen. Valentine’s Day is coming up soon, and to be honest, it’s one of the most irrelevant holidays there is.

It is nice to be spoiled and given gifts to show that someone loves you, but why can’t they show their love every day of the year? It also excludes all the single fellas out there and makes them realize how lonely and depressed they really are. All the single people act like they don’t care about Valentine’s Day, but in all reality, they wish they were spending the night with someone special.

Not only is it a bad holiday for single people, but it destroys the wallets of couples. We spend $50 on a dinner, a movie, and a teddy bear they will probably just throw in the closet. Why do we spoil them and buy them a steak dinner we could be enjoying for ourselves just because society says we have to on this specific date?

Valentine’s Day is just another lame excuse of a holiday, so make sure you reconsider your plans for that Friday night.
