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 Valentineโ€™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.

Valentineโ€™s is for Couples


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. ...
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
