Anti-Valentine’s Day

If you celebrate Anti-Valentine’s Day, it doesn’t mean that you’re Anti-Valentine, hate love, or even that you’re single. It simply means you go out and stuff your cart like it’s Black Friday with half-priced candy. In fact, people who seriously celebrate this holiday appreciate the commercialism that is Valentine’s Day more than most people. This is because without companies’ mass producing stock candies, this wonderful holiday would not exist.

What is Anti-Valentine’s Day, other than the most inspiring and delightful pleasure of the year? To me, it’s simply the day after Valentine’s Day. As soon as Valentine’s Day is over, businesses no longer have use for their surplus manufactured goods and in order to make a profit on these items, they sell them at a discount. So all the aromatic, independent singles can satisfy themselves for half the price.

Anti-Valentine’s Day is capitalism at its finest and is a holiday that should be celebrated by all. Have the best of time with your sugar rushes.
