Dont get me started on... Valentine s Day

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Don?t get me started on... Valentine? s Day is trying to abduct me into a fake world where everything is glorious and perfect, a world we all wish to be living in. February 14th is the date I most dread every year. Couples get loved up and forget about the important things in life, such as working nine to five to pay the enormous bills that are piled in a drawer or scattered in the living room. Using Valentine?s Day as a runaway from bills isn?t going to make things better. Running away from Valentine?s Day sounds more appealing, it stop?s us from meeting women like these: 1) The hopefuls: These are women who get excited on Valentine?s Day because they believe their special person is out there somewhere, and loneliness isn?t an option. 2) ...read more.

New years and Christmas are two good reasons for going out and celebrating. A new year is a day where we all are overwhelmed for the year to coming, while Christmas is celebrating Jesus? birthday. And then there?s Valentine?s Day... An interesting way for the government to continue making a ridiculous amount of money - which would probably be spent on single parents benefits. This makes me think. Government= a greedy bunch of people who needs money to operate. So that?s it. Valentine?s Day is just a day the government make money, they don?t care about lovers. People are not thinking outside the box and why there really is a valentine?s day, it?s all a part of the government?s evil and sick plan. ...read more.
