Ah, Valentines Day is upon us.
Valentines Day, interesting little holiday. Some believe that it is based in the St. Valentines Day Massacre in Chicago, perpetrated, (or ordered) by Al Capone. Nope, it just happened, to happen on that day. Others believe that it is in order to honor St. Valentine, a Catholic Saint, but which one, there are three. All three were martyred. There really is no accurate history to the holiday. In our time, or modern time, if you will, it have become the holiday of lovers. If you really look at it though, its a holiday geared specifically toward women. At least if you listen to and watch the adds that fly around this time of year. All about Diamonds, and Flowers and Chocolate. The only of which has any real value being the diamond, until she throws it at your head lol. One thing I do not understand about the holiday myself, is you have people (and we all know these people) that claim they care not for it, blah blah blah. Yet are upset, when there other, actually does nothing for the day, for them. Ah, the entrance of hypocrisy into the mix, thus the throwing of the diamond. What about single people though, they are summarily excluded from this holiday. What are we to do, shall we go to the restaurants and bars, and taunt those that are coupled? This may be entertaining, till someone beats us up lol.
