I love holidays. I love celebrations. I especially love holidays that encourage me to celebrate people I love.
But I hate Valentine’s Day.
When I mention it at all, I wish people Happy VD.
Why am I so curmudgeonly about a holiday everyone else seems to love?
2 Reasons to Hate Valentine’s Day
I have two reasons:
- I’m too frugal for Valentine’s Day. It offends my cheap sensibilities to pay three times more for flowers or candy that will be heavily discounted the next day.
- I hate any chance that a holiday would make wonderful single people doubt their worth because they don’t have a romantic partner to celebrate the day with.
Maybe I can remake the day so I can get behind it.
Remake Valentine’s Day
I’m not particularly interested in a third century Roman saint. So why not change the holiday to something we can all get behind?
I propose we celebrate Palentine’s Day, a day to share our love for all our pals—both human and animals. We should spend the day sharing love and having fun. Oh, and getting ready for the next day’s sales on chocolates and perfume.
