Valentine’s Day Isn’t For Everyone

Valentine’s Day might be my least favorite holiday in the entire year. I hate that I can’t go out to dinner with friends, wear red or pink (unless I want people to think that I dressed for the day), or pick up a prescription without being bombarded by those disgusting-tasting conversation hearts at the drugstore. But I’m not allowed to say that because people will think I’m sad and bitter about being single. I’m neither of those, but I am beginning to think that the way I feel on Valentine’s Day might be the way Jewish people feel on Christmas. But at least there are lists like these to make me feel solidarity with others who aren’t so hot on the holiday. [Times Online]
