I only despise Valentine's day with the burning hatred of a thousand suns because I'm a bitter single person.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: Who hates Saint Paddy's day?

Actually, I doubt many really "Hate" St. Patty's day, just less people "observe" or "celebrate" it in some way than most other "major" holidays.   As opposed to V-Day, which if you don't celebrate it, you probably hate it... it is the Dallas Cowboys of holidays.

"I think Valentine's Day has gotten sort of commercialized. The opinion we hear is, it's sort of a Hallmark holiday,"

That's why I prefer to celebrate in a traditional manner by finding a dude who's marrying people and cutting off his head.

Oh, come on...St. Patrick's Day ("Amateur Hour") is aweseome. Two years in a row I went to LoDo here in Denver and hung outside just to watch 20-something-year-old drunks get bounced and wrestled to the curb while screaming every ounce of profanity they know.  It did not disappoint either year.

cookiefleck: I'll be the only one to admit that i hated it when i was single, but now that I'm dating i really love it.

It does feel weird. Usually I have to be reminded it was V-Day. But 2 weeks ago, a long time friend confessed she's always had strong feelings for me so now we're dating. Now the pressure is on. Settled on some bouquet of flowers made to look like the Super Mario Bros flowers since we both play and a necklace with Mars dust in it since she loves space and wants to work at NASA. Last girlfriend would've biatched "You got me some computer flowers and a dirt necklace?!!1!!1!?11!!!"

I kind of wish all holidays would disappear. I'm tired of having to do things because the calendar says so. I sound like a blast at parties.

For everything that someone likes, there are 10 people there to shiat on it. Lol. That's the internet. Smh. I see a lot of people playing the "I'm a grown-up so I don't have fun that way" role. And they're saying it on a message board that people use to post juvenile, idiotic, and childish stuff.  Why don't you go comment on a Wall Street Journal article Mr. Nofun McStuffyPants?

The Stealth Hippopotamus: Who hates Saint Paddy's day?

People who go to bars and get drunk every day who, one day of the year, can't get a seat at their local and get shoved, jostled, and puked on by amateur drinkers who are under the impression that putting green food coloring in Budweiser makes it Irish.

rickythepenguin: I love the day after Valentine's Day.  You always know who didn't get that ring they had their heart set on. Count how many puffy eyed young ladies you see that morning, whom you know are in relationships.

I love the day after Valentines Day and the day after St. Patrick's Day, because all the overstock of unsold chocolate and Guinness go on sale.

Valentine's Day is a cynical cash grab by greeting card companies (no, I don't have a girlfriend, you're an asshole for asking).

HEY LADIES, THIS ONE'S SINGLE for some unfathomable reason.

That's what she told me, too, but my doctor begged to differ.

Former co worker came in one day after, and no "Good morning", "whats up", etc.  Just an angry, "AGAIN!"  and i look up and she flashes the back of her unadorned hand to me.

Wedding ring.  Not yours.
