Anyone else already tired of today?
Anyone else think this day, Valentine’s Day, is dumb?
The stores love it because it is just a marketing bonanza filled with stupid little gifts. Money, money, money! The cash registers ring non-stop.
Ever notice that the price for things that are normally reasonable suddenly go way up? Case in point, flowers. A dozen roses at Safeway any other time of the year is $14.99. The days surrounding Valentine’s Day…$45.99. Seems like a scam to me! Hopefully you ordered yours early or you may be outta luck, or pay through the nose as the price probably went up.
Sappy cards @ $5.99 a pop. Little trinkets and stuffed animals @ $7.99. Chocolate, of course varies on size and quality, is priced like there is going to be a shortage in the near future. I mean, really, nothing says “I love you” like a box of chocolates. I love you so much, why don’t you add a few pounds.
Don’t even think about reservations at the last minute! Prepare to drop a fortune if you are going to a special restaurant. You might as well just hit up the McDonalds drive-thru and go home to sit on the couch.
Alright. I am sure you get it. I’ll stop.
Today is stupid.
Got a Valentine’s Day horror story? Do you agree with me? Tell me in the comments!
Valentine’s Day is pagan so I never celebrate it. Check out Lubercalia if you are interested in its sordid origin.
Thanks for your input, but I believe you are referring to Lupercalia which was a pagan holiday. However, I can’t find any credible source that connects the death of St. Valentine and Lupercalia other than they fall on similar calendar days.

This may be interesting *link removed by blog owner*
Thanks. I visited the “About” page of the website that posted the video. If a website won’t identify who is actually posting/creating the information then it can’t be considered a credible source because it can’t be vetted properly. It is just someone’s interpretation, or opinion.

As a Christian I pray on such things as like you I prefer truth and God clearly showed me this festival is pagan. I trust no man:-)
While the festival itself may be pagan, I don’t think you can necessarily associate Valentine’s Day as a pagan holiday. Clearly, the goals of the two holidays are different and historically based on two different things.
