The Real Valentine's Day

Valentine's day is a day where people are suppose to celebrate love... BUT people buy chocolates, flowers, teddy bears, sexy lingerie la lala lalalala lalal lal la 

The primary motive behind Valentines is MONEY. And plenty of it! Hallmark is cleverly cashing in on the sales of Valentines Day greeting cards. The same with people who sell flowers, candy and cute cuddly bears. Society forces you to feel obligated to celebrate a day which alienates half the population and puts the other half in financial stress... People now expect gifts to be exchanged in a Valentine’s ritual. Giving gifts to make someone feel special should have personal motives- motives of honestly trying to make that person feel good, not a commercialized ritual which society expects.... When it comes down to it Valentines is a overrated capitalistic invention by Hallmark to make money..

So happy unimaginative, consumer-oriented and entirely arbitrary, manipulative and shallow interpretation of romance day everybody!!!!
