Valentine’s Week and its antithesis

Friday, February 09, 2018

For those Rip Van Winkles like us who came in late, what was once Valentine’s Day is now Valentine Week, which signifies a bonanza for those in love. So yesterday was Propose Day, today is Chocolate Day and tomorrow is Teddy Day. Then there is Promise Day, Hug Day, Kiss Day, all leading up to Valentine’s Day on the 14th. It certainly seems rewarding to be born in the 21st century or nearabouts because there seems to be more celebration all around! But, as the maxim goes, if there is a thesis then there is also bound to be an anti-thesis. For those who are in no mood to celebrate and/or have been stung by Cupid’s outrageous slings, there is an Anti-Valentine Week which begins from February 15. As India.com puts it: “Anti-Valentine week comes to the help of everyone who got their heart broken on Valentine’s Day or are planning to end their relationship. So, the week begins with Slap Day on February 15, and goes on to celebrate hatred and break-up. After Slap Day comes Kick Day, Perfume Day and Flirting Day. There is also a Confession Day, Missing Day and the final Breakup Day.” What can we say? Blame it on the tempests and fury of love!
