A normal, every day dictionary will tell you that the definition of Valentine’s Day goes something like, “a day for the exchange of tokens of affection.”
The ever popular Urban Dictionary, however, claims that Valentine’s Day is really “the reason why so many people are born in November,” “a corporate conspiracy conceived by candy makers, rose growers, lingerie stores and jewelers to get people to spend money on junk,” or “Singles Awareness Day.”
Those who do have a significant other, or hope to attain one, usually plan something, be it small or big, to make the day special. Sometimes things play out, as they should, while other times, one’s Valentine’s Day turns out to be not all that was hoped for.
