Whose Bright Idea Was This?

Here I come with my soap box again...

Who was the guy that thought up Valentine's Day? I mean really... do you need a specific day to tell the person you love that you love them? I'm not complaining because I didn't get anything, on the contrary, Steve took me to a really nice dinner. But during dinner I decided that this day was a waste of a holiday. I love Steve so much (que music... Truely, Madly, Deeply) so why do I need a day to celebrate it. I do it everyday. It seems to me that Valentine's Day is just a day... not to celebrate love, but to say "Hey... you are single AGAIN this year!" how sad is that? I think that Valentine's Day is just a way to exploit the people and I guess the time between Christmas and Easter so they threw in Valentine's Day.

Ok, it's getting late and I'm going to start not making sense. The jist of this was to day that I think that Valentine's Day is a dumb holiday, and that I love Steve more than just one day a year.



I totally agree... and then your husband (at least mine) feels obligated to go waste money on some lame flowers and chocolates... .when i would have way rather had that money to go buy some new shoes or clothes?? oh well i guess!

As for who started it, apparently it was none other than the great English Medieval writer, Geoffrey Chaucer (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentine's_Day).

And responding to the above, why don't you women just ask your husbands to not buy you flowers and chocolate and instead get you the shoes you want? Makes sense to me but I am a man.
