Valentines Day, Bah Humbug

This year, Israel has fully embraced Valentines Day, the malls are festooned with red heart shaped paraphernalia and I have turned into the Grinch.

Let me state unequivocally that my objections are not based upon my status as a single person, currently uninvolved with a partner.

Valentines Day is a holiday created and sponsored by Hallmark, candy makers and flower sellers.  Valentines Day mocks any unattached male or female, and says "Ha ha, NO ONE  will be sending you a mushy card, NO ONE will be buying you flowers or planning a romantic dinner.  You are not getting special Valentines Day Sex tonight, ha ha."

I do not enjoy feeling excluded.  We all, all of us human beings on the planet, deserve to feel loved, every day of the year.

Bah Humbug...
