Valentines Day

I have always wondered how Valentines Day is what it is today: A sappy romantic holiday for couples. But what about those of us that are not seeing anybody? What about those singles out there, like myself, that don't have anybody to give little romantic gifts or recieve flowers from? This is why I quite dislike this holiday.

After being single for the last two Valentines Day's, I have decided to give up completely on this holiday. Although I do wish for a secret admirer to send me a flower or even a little card stuck in my purse or backpack, I don't think this will ever happen. At least for me, anyways.

The part that irks me the most is the fact that there seem to be more couples out there on this one particular day. As I walked around school today there were carnations in almost every girls hand and even some stuffed animals in the guys backpacks. What is the reason for this? Oh yeah, Valentines Day.

If I actually had someone, I wouldn't think this holiday was so bad. It is a little lame, that I will never think differently about, but it would be nice to have someone... or even get just a card...

Well, that's all I have to say for now. I think I might be going to practice tonight, if I don't fall asleep first. Teehee

  1. How it came to be? I can help you on that. Saint Valentine was a man who used to go around and help blind children. And then he was put into jail to be executed and children and people wrote little notes (hence the Valentines) to him telling him how much they appreciated him and etc. And his execution date was February 14th.
    And then, Chaucer wrote a romantic poem taking place on the 14th of February, and the rest is history.

    But you have me silly! And yes, being single on Valentine's Day sucks. Trust me. I've ALWAYS been single ;)
