Valentine’s Day

When I think of Saint Valentine’s Day, one incident immediately comes to memory; the Valentine’s Day massacre of 1929. I’m sure Al Capone’s famous order doesn’t resonate with everyone, but I’m a little different. (I would go into details, but that’s what Google is for!)

Valentine’s Day is short and sweet. (Kind of like this post!)

If you have someone, make their day special. If you don’t have someone, don’t hate on those who are happy*. (*In this incident, happy denotes the appearance of being happy even though you may be going through some tough times!)

Obviously, Valentine’s Day is a marketing ploy, but it is what it is. We live in a society which forces people to celebrate their “love” on this particular day. For those of you who feel bitter because you do not have a special someone in your life, August 13 will now be known as Miserable Day! (You can celebrate your negative energy!)

I’m sure there will be people who wonder, “how the heck did he come up with August 13th?” It’s simple really; August doesn’t have a major holiday, so it’s the perfect month, and 13is a so called unlucky number!

I hope everyone has a great day! I’m off to bed! (For a short 2-hour nap before work!)

First and foremost, I enjoy writing stories. I recently completed my first novel, and I successfully co-wrote a short film script, which won the grand prize in the words made easy competition.

  1. What annoys me about Valentines is the people that get annoyed by Valentines. Yeah its a commercialized holiday but aren’t all our holidays?! Get over it! The way I see it Valentines Day is not just about couples its also about family and friends! So take the time to wish those near and dear to you a lovely day.

    Happy Valentines Day Pedro!!

  2. I am with you both… it’s not my favorite holiday but no one is forced to participate.. Let all enjoy it as they wish!!
