An Idiot's Guide to Valentine's Day

Single or attached here are just a few of the love adventures you can look forward Single or attached here are just a few of the love adventures you can look forward

Sure, tons of people think Valentine's Day is one of the most annoying days of the year, but it wasn't always a super-commercialized holiday.

Just because you're single doesn't mean Valentine's Day is just another day on the calendar.

What is the popular meaning of Valentine's Day flowers and what message do they portray to the person who gives or receives them? It was a twisted celebration of love that society has now altered to sell romantic cards, among other things.

Wales: In fact, Valentine's Day in Wales is not on February 14, but on the annual Saint Dwynwen Day on January 25. For single folks, it's sometimes considered "Singles Awareness Day", when they loathe relationships and wait for the chocolates to go on sale.

If you have not yet prepared for Valentine's Day, time is running out.

During the middle ages, Valentine's Day was not associated with flowers, chocolates and gifts, instead it was a day to commemorate the acts of Valentinus.

There is no need to go for broke to she her you love her on Valentine's Day.

You don't have to believe in the idea of Valentine's Day to get embroiled in all the supposed love in the air today.

"As demand for flowers and stuffed dolls is high during the day, we are out of the supply now", a floral and gift service shop owner told Xinhua. Still, there are other, creative ways to profess your love that are low-priced, but just as meaningful.

Perhaps such thinking is why I'll be Valentineless for yet another year, same as it's been this entire millennium. Hand out little Valentine's Day cards or make homemade gifts and treats and pass them out to your classmates and friends.

Don't talk to me about Valentines Day. It doesn't have to all be about falling in love and giving and receiving jewellery and chocolates. The truth is, you don't have to spend a lot of money to show your loved ones you care.

Just like other holidays, companies can take advantage of the amount of profit they can make, but Valentine's Day creates an incentive for people to get together and express their feelings. This includes not just the good but also the bad, even if that someone ends up being like Liz (Anne Hathaway), the phone sex operator. However, I don't want to see one as a Valentine's Day gift.

So, if you hate Valentine's Day because you haven't found "the one", don't give up.

Being single on Valentine's Day is okay, there are alternative ways you can spend the day without a significant other.
