February 14th is a day that some couples look forward to all year long, here's some reasons to hate the Hallmark Holiday.
According to History.com, Valentine's Day is a day of the year honoring a priest named Saint Valentine who was put to death in Medieval times for claims made against the Church. How romantic? Here's our list of many other reasons to dislike this holiday:
Why Save Love For One Day A Year
When being in a relationship Valentine's Day seems as if it can be an obligation to show your love to your significant other. But if you truly love someone you should be showing them EVERYDAY not just one day out of the year!
The Cheap Mystery Chocolates
The little heart shaped containers from various one stop shops that don't even label the contents of their candies and just taste like straight sugar.
Presents Should Be Given Throughout The Year...Not Just One Day
In a relationship, presents should be given spontaneously and on meaningful dates, but there seems to be an expectation of gift giving for this holiday.
The Prices of Typical Valentine's Day Gifts Prices Are Through The Roof
The prices of the most common Valentine's Day gifts go up by a significant amount to add more stress to you and your wallet.
Finding Time To Celebrate The Holiday
Everybody has a job to do during the weekdays. No one has time on a Tuesday night to get all dressed up and go out to dinner to celebrate a holiday based around materialistic ideals.
The Trend Of Getting Engaged On Valentine's Day
Engagements should be relevant to your personal relationship! Whether it's on a significant date or at a special place in both of your heart's. It'd be a much more memorable experience and a better story to tell over a Valentine's Day engagement.
Flowers Are A Complete Waste Of Money
The prices of flowers during the Valentine's Day hype are skyrocketed, especially the price of everybody's cherished roses which are SO BASIC. Not to mention they die a week later.
