Valentine's Day. Val-en-tine's Day. Hallmark holiday. Flying baby in a diaper shooting arrow hearts day. I don't know, I'm very indifferent about this holiday.
I've never understood Valentine's Day as a holiday. I never celebrated it the way traditional people or movies do. I always found it funny that people go all out on one significant day or use it as a "sorry" holiday because what girl is going to be mad at her boyfriend after he showers her with flowers, candy, and dinner?
I always felt that Valentine's Day was a forced holiday. Much like Thanksgiving and Christmas, it's in your face weeks or months before the actual holiday approaches, but unlike the two not everyone celebrates it. Remember elementary school when your teacher had everyone make Valentine Cards and hearts so that everyone can feel included in the love holiday. Your classmates were your Valentine. You were one. You were the same.
A lot of things stand out to me when I think of Valentine's Day:
So this Valentine's Day, like every one before it, I will consume candy like its Halloween (though it's bad for my acne) and watch Netflix's Big Mouth My Furry Valentine.
*Side Note: Oh, I was wrong. My Bloody Valentine is what comes to mind as a Valentine's Day movie.
