I have recently discovered that celebrating Valentine’s Day isn’t cool anymore. I think that most people are repelled by the immoderate commercialization of this holiday. For example, my husband was buying me flowers a week ago, and he was told at the flower shop that it’s a good thing he’s buying them now, because, right before the holiday, all flowers would cost 15% more. As if it would be possible to buy Valentine’s Day flowers in advance.
I have an idea – I think Valentine’s Day should be made illegal. Then it would be so much fun to celebrate it. Instead of meeting at a restaurant that is very conspicuously filled with couples, people would meet their dates in romantically secret places. The whole process of the date would be cloaked in adventure and mystery. The bittersweet taste of danger would only amplify the feelings that people have for each other.
Of course, there would have to be a special Valentine’s Day police unit. Anyone who would get caught kissing or even gazing at each other longingly would have to be fined.
Meanwhile, since it’s still possible to celebrate Valentine’s Day without any potential legal repercussions, I would like to wish you a happy one!
The new law could be advertised by this catchy jingle.
