I didn't realize we were supposed to ask for it. Guess the IEFF dodged that bullet, too!!
Way to go SR!
Good man! I like your style.
I did not even notice it. It just goes to show how oblivious I am of that "holiday".
I expected a thread or something, not that I wanted one, but nothing. Very interesting.
Wow! You are right! I didn't even notice.
[link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antivalentinism#Alternatives]St Skeletor?s Day 2008[/link]
St Skeletor?s Day is a non-commercial alternative to the corporate whorefest that is St Valentine?s Day. Each year, on February 15th, the festival of St. Skeletor occurs worldwide. The purposes are:-
* a) The destruction of ?lurrve?
* 2) The destruction of saucy greetings cards
* d) The destruction of people with boyfriends/girlfriends
St Valentine of course is the patron saint of making single people feel like crap ? each year, the celebration drifts further away from the celebration of love, and further towards the celebration of fluffy handcuffs, expensive flowers, thoughtless greetings cards and other tat shaped into heart shaped packaging, putting pressure on people in relationships to partake of their hard earned cash and actually buy this crap.
Worse still, many companies now send Valentine?s cards to their customers, further polluting the concept of love.
I was under the impression that, sans Hallmark, it'd always been more or less that structure.
Eh, I just ignore it rather than make a big deal about the day which just calls yet more attention to it. Though I do have friends wish a happy valentine's day and stuff, so i seem be to be in the right spots for it to be getting broken down into a less restrictive holiday.
