Default Valentine's Day

Seeing as it's this Friday, any special plans or stuff you guys have planned?

Some friends of mine are planning a Single's Day on Sunday.

Any special people you plan on impressing?

So, I'm in a relationship. And people insist on shoving heteronormative practices in my face. "You have a girlfriend?" Yes. "Are you doing anything special for Valentine's Day?" No. "You probably should get her something." We don't like Valentine's Day. "Of course she does." No. Seriously. Fuck off.

as much as some people want me to, nope, i have nothing planned. i don't have an s.o. or anything so.

unless something drastically changes in the next few days i'm either going home to go shopping for ushering clothes or chilling here and eventually going shopping for ushering clothes.

On one hand I'm happy that us Welsh can ignore Valentine's day and celebrate our equivalent version of it in January that isn't horribly commercialised (or commercialised at all), but on the other, nobody else has ever heard of it/claim that we're just copying, and also all the Valentine's cards/gifts are already being sold in shops by that point.

Apparently, the Chinese have their own Valentine's day as well! As a part of their lunar calendar.

When I was a kid Valentines Day was a Big Thing. My dad used to make heart shaped pancakes, and there would be gifts... it'd be like a post-Christmas.

Nowadays, my parents still like to make a Big Thing out of it, but on a smaller scale. I still get things from them, but not on such a scale.

This is the only the second Valentines Day that I actually have a Valentine. So I've arranged a surprise flower delivery for her at work, and a romantic dinner and stuffs planned.

Valentine's day shouldn't exist.

By which I mean, couples really shouldn't need an excuse to be nice to each other, go on a date and get each other presents. I have nothing against the day itself, just how it inadvertently tells people that they don't need to do those things the rest of the time.

With that logic, birthday celebrations shouldn't exist either! You don't need a special day to be recognised as an individual, right?

Also, no Valentine for Mohac this year! I'm going to send anon messages to all of my followers on Tumblr, though so at least I'll get something out of it!

Eh, I think birthdays are pointless. I don't celebrate mine. That isn't to say, I think birthdays should disappear; I just don't see much value in them.

ah, valentine's day. a.k.a. "crushing reaffirmation that you don't have a significant other and everybody else does" day.

I'm probably just gonna, y'know, have fun with friends and such, but nothing out of the ordinary. Maybe relax a bit, call a friend? who knows. Ironically, the biggest paper I have ever turned in is due that day, so. I guess my school at least knows what's important.

No, couples don't need an excuse! but sometimes it's fun to be publicly romantic and it's kind of nice to have a designated day to celebrate romantic relationships!

Every single year on valentine's there is someone who brings out 'you should be nice to your partner all the time not just on valentine's' when there is literally nobody who does that. who the hell only goes on dates or does cute things with their partner only on one day of the year? i think it's more that people tend to do traditionally romantic things on valentines day, like give roses and go out for dinner and stuff and give each other chocolate ... which is fine?? maybe people go bungee-jumping together the rest of the year and find it perfectly romantic? maybe people don't feel the need to do elaborate things except when there's a tradition for it and maybe that makes it more special for them?? i dunno.

even if people do only do romantic things on valentine's day... who cares? why does anyone care what anyone does in their own relationship smh

Apparently I have a date-type-thing with my boyfriend-type-thing on this day people appear to do date-type-things with their partner-type-things. We're going to go to some place and do some thing and probably fight over how to split the bill. I guess I don't mind if he wins because he's forgotten that he owes me 10 bucks.

Valentine's day? No.
Galentine's day? (tomorrow) Yes.

But anyways, I really don't think that valentine's day is necessary; it was fun in elementary school cause everyone was included in the fun in some way when you had to buy valentines for everyone in the class.

there really shouldn't be a day where you are supposed to treat your significant other to a good day or something else romantic, couples should treat each other lovingly and respectfully every day.

Modern Valentine's Day is quite different from it's original meaning. It is, at its origins, a Christian feast.

Every saint in Catholicism has a day, for example, my patron saint (your patron saint is the one that's day is your birthday) is St. Andrew, brother to one of the Apostles. Valentine's is just that, St. Valentine's Day, well, technically it's a Feast Day too, Feast of Saint Valentine (all of the St. Valentines, because there are quite a few of them). (At least originally it was, now the RCC has removed it because there is lack of proof to make it a Feast Day anymore.)

And hell, Valentine's Day has a bloody and pretty interesting history to it. Seriously, look it up, it's really interesting.

Anywho, it's one of humanity's oldest traditions, going back to the Middle Ages.
