5. The Color Red

"RED is synonymous with romance and love and all that fuzzy feeling that comes with being with another person?

Dope reasoning," laments Eva, a marketing professional.

Of course, we can all trace red and Valentine’s Day to history and legends but why not green or yellow?

There were years when establishments advertised Blue or Black Valentine but those didn't quash the ever-enduring red.

Not to mention all those couples wearing twin shirts or people who go red on this day.

No offense, but a lot of these are just way too much.

Valentine’s is for Couples


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
