Hype and Valentine

There hasn't been much noise from the "moral police" this Valentine's day. I guess they're used to the show now. Hey, maybe they're celebrating--in the privacy of their own homes of course.

All that aside, are you not sick of the Valentine's day hype? Newspapers are filled with articles about what to do, what not to do, what to buy, where to buy it, where to go, what to eat, what toilet paper to use, and so on. There are "sales" and "deals" for Valentine's day. It wouldn't surprise me if three-year olds in schools are also caught up in the hype. Maybe even pre-school kids. Get 'em early baby.

For the record, I've no problem with Valentine's day, no problem with people celebrating it, doing whatever they want. Just stop this saccharine sweetness and the over-hype. It's just too sweet.

Happy Valentine's day anyway. May you and your loved ones be safe and happy.

And may they ban the color pink...
Everything sure is overhyped nowadays. Makes you feel kinda uncomfortable celebrating something becoz u feel like u r giving in to the hype.

I don't have anything against pink,but I know what you mean about feeling uncomfortable. It's like the feeling you get when you read a book or watch a movie that everyone thinks is great, but you don't feel that way.
