Every year when V-day comes up, there are two sets of people: those who love the day, and celebrate it without complaint, whatever that may entail for them, and the other set (usually men) who blast this holiday as being a made up, over commercialized, and a pratical assault on men. Usually group two says why do I need a day to celebrate love/our love when I love you 365 days a year. Isn't Valentine's day one of those days too? You also rarely if ever hear these same guys complain on Father's Day/Mother's Day telling their parents, well I love you 365 days a year therefore I'm not going to do anything or celebrate this overcommercialized holiday. No one complains as hard about the dozens of birthdays they have to attend which follow the same principal. For me, there are so many awful things going on in the world and the fact that there is a day to celebrate love, seems like something people would want to celebrate and take stock of. Count yourself lucky if you have friends, family, married, bf/gf, what have you. I like going all out for my boyfriend and making him feel special and appreciated for how he treats, cares, and loves me, the same as on his birthday, Christmas, and all those other in between days of the year. So why is Valentine's Day so hated when ironically it's a day about love. Aren't there worse things in life then conciously celebrating and recognizing love for one day a year?
Why does there always seem to be such a war between genders, on Valentine's Day?

Fore one, Valentines is commercialized. For two, men complain about it because the vast majority of financial spending on Valentine's come from men - they don't want to waste that money on useless shit like chocolate but they have to because they are socially expected to do so. And if they don't they will be shamed.0
There is the third party aswell.. the one which doesn't give a single shit about valentines day ^^0
Its like that every day lol0
