    Valentines day

    Abit of a rant.
    Valentines day.
    Whats the big deal with it ?
    its far to over the top now and i just dont get it.
    i dont get why there has to be a specific day for you to buy a gift, card, flowers, choclates and other related items for your partner.
    i personnaly try my hardest all year round to be "romantic" and nice to my girlfriend. Then when it comes to valentines day its the same as any other day but every pub, club, restaurant and shops are rammed full of couples.
    All the single people feel like crap aswell.
    I just see it as a way for all shops to cash in on this stupid unnessacary day.
    The early bird might get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

    Yep pretty much. But you could pretty easily avoid it all if wanted IMO.
