I used to be bitter. Last year, I wasn't. But this year, I'm going to be bitter again. So... dear Bean, why don't we have a contrast. On Valentine's Day, I'll give you some roses and you'll give them back to me. And we're all happyBean said:Maybe I'm just bitter.
I disagree, but I don't think you're far off. In my opinion, the worst is "Sweetest Day." I hadn't even heard of it until I moved to Ohio where I was "informed" that everyone in the U.S. celebrates it. Try explaining to someone thatBean said:The worst is Valentines Day. It exists solely to make single people depressed and to make couple buy useless crap or the won't "love" each other.
I always get a jolt of happiness when I hear someone doesn't know what Sweetest Day is. It is a holiday started by Hallmark to sell more cards, flowers, and candy. It's *exactly* like Valentine's Day. It's on October 17. When Justin (that's my fiance's name) and I started dating, I told him that he didn't need to get me anything for Sweetest Day because I don't celebrate it and it's only two days after my birthday. He looked so relieved!faile said:what in the world is 'sweetest day'? and i live in minnesota, and no-one i know celebrates it! i haven't even heard of it!
