Valentines day humor – Because love and relationship statuses weren’t complicated enough, in the 14th century Geoffrey Chaucer decided to take over a Western Christian liturgical feast day during which saints named Valentinus were honored, and started associating the latter with romantic love and courting. Regarding Valentine’s day the way we know it, credits go to the English, who four centuries later decided that card & confectionary gifting would work like a charm on this specific occasion.
Let us not be fooled though by the sweetness of the concept itself (and we won’t even attempt to flirt with the profit-oriented aspect of the celebration); these days with the standards set (willingly or not) by the media and praised too highly by Hollywood (because everyone can evidently afford to fly across the world in order to deliver a hundred red roses and a 10 grand/2 meters high stuffed teddy bear), Valentine’s day preparations and its observance can turn out to be quite stressful and lead to a few brainstorming sessions, not to mention a moment of intense despise on behalf of the “single” population (we’ve all experienced both sides of the V-Day effect), who because of exactly what was disclosed above, feel like the whole thing is being bashed down their throats and that Valentine’s day is synonym to Singles Awareness day.
Concerned or not by Valentine’s day, its traditions & its realities, people will rarely be against having a good February 14th giggle/mocking session, so why not take a few in order to check out our Ultimate Valentine’s day Guide?
