Valentine's Day: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Here's a little History Lesson for you:
Valentine's Day, or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is observed on February 14th each year. It is celebrated in many countries around the world.  St. Valentine's Day began as a liturgical celebration of one or more early Christian saints named Valentinus

The most popular martyrology associated with Saint Valentine was that he was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians, who were persecuted under the Roman Empire.

Legend states that before his execution he wrote "from your Valentine" as a farewell to her.  wikipedia/Valentine's_Day

--How sweet is that story?  That makes me want to celebrate Valentine's Day for the right reasons.

Here's what Valentine's Day looks like in Modern day:

Scared yet?  This obnoxious package is supposed to show how much you care about someone.

This is a downplayed version of what I saw when I walked into the grocery store. 

God help those of you who are single. This is hard to avoid.  
I'm not single and it made me want to gag. 

I'm pretty sure my BF who was with me felt the same way 
(if not much worse Lol).  

Nothing says eternal love like items that will either be eaten and go straight to your butt or that will die (flowers) after a week.  

I won't lie though--I'm a sucker for candy and flowers.  I care more about the thought that goes into gifts though.  

I don't want someone to buy me something because they feel like they have to do it.

Here's some Funnies for you (Happily Single, Unhappily Single, Happily Taken, Unhappily Taken):

Happy Single Awareness Day to Some of you...

This will be me on V-Day!  Haha.

If my boyfriend did this I'd retaliate times 5 [if you're reading this, here's your fair warning ;) ]. 

This advertisement is just ridiculous.

How Romantic? 

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY to all of my readers!
