Many people think Valentine’s Day is the best holiday. Well I don’t and I’m here to tell you 4 different reasons why it’s a horrible holiday.

  1. How much money is spent on Valentine’s Day? About $20 billion was spent on Valentine’s Day in 2016. We waste money on cards, candy, roses, and ect. Where does all that go? In the trash. The cards we read and throw away after, the candy makes us fat and it’s unhealthy, and the roses end up dying and we throw them away.  
  2. This holiday makes people sad. Valentine’s Day has the highest rate of suicide calls. This holiday is really hard for some people; some are depressed. About 75% of suicide attempts are about relationship problems. There’s even a sickness called Broken Heart Syndrome also known as Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy, this is caused by chest pains.
  3. People get ripped off. Salesman sell roses that would normally be $10 a bouquet for up to $75. Most people want fresh flowers for their loved ones but salesman take advantage of that and they raise the prices. Is that really worth it?
  4. Valentine’s Day gives so much stress on both men and woman. People stereotype the roles for this holiday. The man of the relationship has to worry about gifts and how to make the day special. The woman of the relationship has to sit back and hope that she gets what she wants. 

People act like this is the only time to show how much they love each other. You should show your love everyday in your relationship! So why do we need to spend a day of money, time, and stress over a stupid holiday?

    I agree. Also it’s horrible because some people are single and have friends that are taken so they rub it in their face like ‘I have. A boyfriend “and stuff like that.
