Most people loathe Valentine’s Day, but there are a few reasons to enjoy the consumerist holiday based on the Roman ritual of striking women with animal hides to make them fertile. For example, Valentine’s Day provides the following benefits:
-An excuse to self-indulge with your closest gal pals (See: Galentine’s Day)
-The opportunity to ogle charitable exhibitionists running in their underwear in Santa Monica
-An influx of sappy Rom-Coms available on TV/Netflix
-Sexy “pop-up” lingerie sections inside Walmart and Target
-Limited free communication with singles on eHarmony (Do people still use that site?!)
-Discounted candy and chocolate beginning February 15th
Whether you have a sweetheart today or not, don’t forget to show some non-sexual loving gestures to the underappreciated people in your life. Your favorite sales clerk/lonely aunt/barista/Uber driver will thank you!
