whiiiiile i do think one should treat their significant other as though EVERY day is valentine's day....i still cant pass up the chance to be over the top ridiculously lovey dovey.

man and i are celebrating on monday, cause 1) we have the house to ourselves and 2) he's injured at the moment. by "celebrate" i mean i'm buying him a few small things, making him a mix cd, we're drinking a few bottles of champagne, and we're having a lot of sex. mhm. not really too much different than usual =p

Haven't decided yet because I'm not sure what my status is with teh ladiezzz yet.

But:

About half the holidays we celebrate in the US are either fake in some way or super duper dirty capitalist. It's funny that he trupunx crowd picks on Valentine's Day just because it's easily identifiable as such.

ow@ injured mens. what happened to him?

he got thrown in a judo tournament. landed wrong/someone landed on him. he tore something in his shoulder and now he's in a sling and all in pains. but i decorated the sling with smashing pumpkins pins, so it's less miserable looking at least =\

probably for him too, because he already wants to go back to judo.

In here it's called Ystävänpäivä (Day of [a/the] Friend, Friend's Day) or in Swedish Alla hjärtans dag (The day of all hearts) or Vändag (Friend's Day) so it's not a romantic holiday, really.

I will probably text some people before work. Sorting the Valentines' cards everybody else gets. :[

Was too lazy to send any myself. Maybe next year.

Valentine's Day is nothing more than a "holiday" where stupid, young adults and teenagers make excuses to share love with each other. I, for one, have never been with a woman on Valentine's Day, and I laugh at all of the fools who actually believe it to be a good idea. It's just something made up by the media and government to rake in more money for their candies and gift cards.

And you have all of these people who use the holiday for an excuse to lose their virginities. HA! I've never had sex with a woman before, why should I lose my virginity on Valentine's Day? It's ridiculous, and once again, something created by the media to make you buy extra condoms and birth control pills. And what's worse, people make fun of me for it. "Hey Kevin, going single on Valentine's Day again? HAHAHAHA while you'll be at home tasting you're TV dinners, I'll be tasting some girls' pussy!"

Well, hahahhahahaha at YOU, dumbass. You're making fun of me because I actually have the intelligence to not fall into the trap of this idiotic holiday? Besides, I doubt pussy taste good anyway.

i've already expressed my feelings towards this date.


And no... i have no plans and i won't make any. In fact, Valentine's day is like a "rainy day" for me: I just want to lock up in my home, watch movies while drinking hot chocolate in my warm, comfy bed and forget about the world.



I fucking hate Valentine's.

No, you said that all holidays are money-machines (which they are) and only the pnuks target Valentine's Day. I was talking specifically about VALENTINE'S DAY, not those other holidays. Yes, it's just like St. Patricks Day, 4th of July (we actually won our independense on a different day, that day was just the day we REQUESTED it, proof that it is not legit), and Christmas (Christ was actually born sometime in November.). Look at it this way, Febuary is a month not surrounded by holidays, or even months with holidays. So, the media and goovernment know they can make money because people won't be suspicious about the abundance (or lack of) of holdiays. Do you think it is a coincidende they make so much candy and roses for the holiday?

Some of you seem to be under the impression that the commercialization came first, and not the societal celebration.

All societies have had holidays. This pre-dates capitalism. Yes the commercialization is certainly a part of the way the economy works in our society and culture. However I stress the term "part."

JohnnyNemesis

Not only the punks. They were just an example.

Fair enough. My mistake. I just don't see why Valentine's Day should be the specific target of venom when this:


So, the media and goovernment know they can make money because people won't be suspicious about the abundance (or lack of) of holdiays. Do you think it is a coincidende they make so much candy and roses for the holiday?

Happens with every fucking major holiday in existence. Manufactured American flags and memorabilia of all shapes and sizes are sold big time around the 4th of July along with other marketing tie-ins. Halloween and Christmas are the biggest candy sellers of the year, even moreso than Valentine's Day. The economy goes fucking bonkers with Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I just don't see what makes Valentine's Day any worse. Is it the fact that the romance tie-in happens to be more disagreeable to you than other forms of hypocrisy? Is it that the hypocrisy is less veiled? I dunno. For me, it's all the same.

I used to be fiercely anti-Valentine's Day too though. But it just strikes me as dumb. Last year I didn't celebrate it 'cause I was single; I just sent nice little notes to all the important women in my life (my sister, mother, cousins, and one girl I had a crush on) telling them that I hope their day goes well. This year I'm single again but sorta might be involved with someone, so we'll have dinner together, no big deal. Not of this stuff is really that serious.

By the way, the media and government aren't the same thing.

EDIT:


All societies have had holidays. This pre-dates capitalism.

This is very true. My earlier point had more to do with disagreeing with the roots of a holiday (like considering Columbus Day a day of mourning, for example) in addition to whatever dirtiness is in the capitalism. If one thinks there is. Etc.

The societal part is called "love", the commercialization is Valentine's Day.

JohnnyNemesis
02-12-2008, 02:52 PM
Yeah, but if you're in love and/or like someone, isn't it just as dishonest (or at least also dishonest) to purposely avoid it on some arbitrary day?

wheelchairman
02-12-2008, 02:54 PM

Wrong. The societal part is taking a day to celebrate something. This happens periodically throughout the year. The fact that it focuses on romance developed along the way with all the rituals. Essentially you're being whiney cause other people made fun of you (you've made it clear this was your motivation all the way through.) Quit acting like you have any altruistic motives, such as being against capitalism. That's just as lame as the lip service people pay to any other holiday. (Lol like it matters we declared our independence on the 4th or not. That's not the point.)

Grow a back bone.

Saint Valentine's is the celebration. Commercial card giving is the commercialization.

I'm pretty sure Jesus himself passed on the tradition of celebrating x-mas, thanksgiving and especially easter (I hear he was personally involved), so there's like a looong history there. But who invented valentines? The media and the government, that's who.

I don't really mind holidays, they have never bothered me and I've always loved the big discounts shops have for the special days. I don't like valentine's day, though simply because I don't have a valentine. But even if I had one I probably wouldn't like to celebrate it. Overpriced red roses and heart shaped things don't excite me enough. And that's the way EVERYONE in Turkey celebrates it.

Me and my very long term girlfriend broke up a week ago, so Valentines day will be kinda strange for me. I really don't want to think about it too much since it'll probably make me feel quite sad.

Over the last couple weeks I've kinda been in a relationship. I'm trying to be interested, but I'm just not. So between now and Valentines Day I'm probably going to end it. Yeah, I'm going to end a relationship for Valentines Day, I'm a dick.

Nineteen Seventy Nine
02-12-2008, 06:03 PM
Eh, Cody, it kind of makes sense. But you should end it as quickly as possible before she gets you anything. It would suck to exchange gifts (if you even agreed to it) and then break up.

Unless you want to wait until the exact day. She gives you your gift and right after you end the relationship. Then you'd be a dick. A dick with a gift.
