repost from 2010...
Is it a holiday for lovers?
Is it a holiday for suckers?
You be the judge...
Valentine's Day is the holiday for love. Holiday? When did it become a holiday? My first memory of Valentine's came when I was in the 3rd grade. I had to give candy to my classmates (including the dudes) and exchange cards with the girls. Ironically, I had 2 special cards that were gonna go to my 2 Valentines...Catina & Carolyn, who were best friends...LOL.
Back then, Valentine's Day was fun because you would find out the girls in your class who liked you.
Nowadays, Valentine's Day ain't the same.
I mean, there is still a girl in my life who gets a card. And my mom still gets a card.
But society has commercialized the day so much that people who don't have Valentine's are made to feel bad.
Maybe we're just too old now and things ain't what they used to be.
Or maybe...people have turned something that used to be special into a money makin' venture.
Lovers or suckaz? I dunno.
Enjoy the "holiday" folks. LOL
