That second-to-last paragraph is total me. I wholeheartedly agree with this post. I don’t hate Valentine’s Day, but I don’t get it, either. I celebrate Feb 15th — 50% Off Candy Day!
Yes! When I could eat non-vegan chocolate, the day after Valentine’s Day was the greatest day of all. And, I mean, if someone gave me the chocolate on Valentine’s Day, I wouldn’t say no to it. I think the most accurate response is that I don’t entirely “get” it either. There’s no sense of self-pitying or self-loathing to it. It just doesn’t affect me as much as it does other people.
