Valentine's Day

My least favorite holiday of the year is today. I hate Valentine's Day for two reasons. One, it is the ultimate Hallmark holiday. Second, and most importantly, Valentine's Day is a divisional holiday. There are the haves, those with a significant other to celebrate Valentine's Day with a candlelight dinner, and the haves not, those without a significant other, who spend their Valentine's Day like any other day, alone, eating Ramen Noodles for dinner (ok, maybe a little overly dramatic, but you get the picture). No other holiday is like this. Everyone at Christmas gets to celebrate the birth of Jesus if they want to. Everyone at Veteran's Day can take time to remember those who have served in the armed forces. The list goes on and on. Tomorrow is going to be a much better day.
