Is Valentine's Day Overrated ...


Valentine’s Day is here trying to envelop everyone with its love spell and coax your wallets to open up themselves and spend those hard-earned bills for a bouquet of flowers and a box of chocolates.

I can hear some of my friends moan with the classic line I hear at this time of the year: "Is it that day again?

Do I really have to get dressed up and go out to dinner?" Rounding up opinions and thoughts from them, here are reasons why Valentine’s Day is overrated:

1. Red Roses

Janice, 34, said: "Red roses all the time...seriously?2

They are so tacky and guess what, they die.

Nothing and no one lives forever and cut flowers are among the quickest things to bite the bucket.

Plus their petals turn brown and disintegrate all over my carpet." She sounds downright depressing alright but admit it, she has a point.

I'm guessing what she'll say next and that is: "Cut the flowers and pay my apartment bill instead!"

Yes definitely over rated. Should feel like valentines day every day.
If a guy can only tell a woman he loves her one day of the year then he needs 2 get dumped. So over rated & costly don't believe the hype
All holidays are overrated and highly commercialized.

After 28 years I still get generous huge white orchids and bundle of cash to buy what I want. Yes,we still love that special day and I cook a special dinner and we exchange smooch you or funny cards. What's wrong with that ? We are just under and just gone 80 and I hope we have lots more !
Very overrated, especially this year, because it's on a Saturday. It feels almost forced on you.
@Betty I agree my hubby and I show love and appreciation all year round so this day is not extra special to us , plus it's my mom's bday
