Are You Driving To Or Away From Valentine’s Day?

We’ve all heard of Christmas scrooge right, but have you heard of a Valentine’s Day scrooge? You know those people that loathe the 14th February more than any other day in the whole year, and actually find it quite repulsive? Do you live, work, run with one? Are you married to one? Are you, in fact, a Valentine’s Day scrooge yourself?

Now, most people would be quick to think that a V-day scrooge is the ‘way they are’ because they’re perhaps single, bitter, have huge FOMO and, really, they‘re just yearning for someone to take them out for a romantic valentines soiree too. Others may think that their partner or spouse is a Valentine’s scrooge because they’re simply the most unromantic person in the world, who lumbers around with their heavy heart of stone, never passing a thought towards all things cute, sweet and cuddly.

Well, I am here to express my point of view on this day and I am neither of those people above, but I AM a valentine’s scrooge, and I AM proud. No, we are not all unromantic males, we are not all single female spinsters cry-singing into our hairbrushes like Miss Jones about being alone. We are not just lazy and unthoughtful and incapable of showing our feelings. Maybe we just know that it’s a completely made up day. A day which, in actual fact, Emperor Claudius II executed two men — both named Valentine and named that day after them. 14 February – Valentines Day. (How romantic!)
