I hate Valentine’s Day. It’s the absolute worst.
There, I said it.
It’s not that I’m anti-romance or anti-love or anything. Love is great. Love makes the world go ‘round, or whatever the saying is. Love makes people happy and, the way I see it, the more people that we have happy in this world, the better off we’ll be.
I am anti-Valentine’s Day because I am against the idea that you have to treat your significant other special because Hallmark says you have to. If you truly care about someone, every day should be Valentine’s Day, but it shouldn’t have to be so costly.

Homework tires students out which results in them not getting enough sleep for the next day of school. This sleeplessness also limits their physical activity resulting in students being unhealthy.

The entire idea of this perception of oppression, or “War on Christmas”, is a little absurd. People all over are outraged by what they deem to be “fired shots” at Christianity and, more specifically, Christmas itself.
One of the largest examples of the collective backlash surrounding this came from simply trying to acknowledge other holidays throughout the season. In December of 2015, Starbucks released a simple red cup instead of their traditionally Christmas themed cups.
The Leonid staff writes letters to the President-elect Donald Trump. The staff shares their hopes and wishes for his presidency. The letters cover all aspects of the election, from Trump's prior experience to his economic plans.
