The Good Bad and The Ugly of Valentines Day

2 min read

Anybody in a relationship would say that valentines day is a happy holiday about love, but for all the single people it is actually a sad holiday and a cruel reminder.

The Good:

It is commonly known for lovers to share feelings and gifts which for companies is a good thing (for them, for the people buying not so much).
Other Types of Relationships can be celebrated.

The Bad:

Gold Jewelry Sales generate 34 million tons of mine waste
Red Roses Emit 9,000 metric tons of Carbon Dioxide
Men get pressured to buy their girlfriends more expensive and extravagant gifts when they can’t afford it
Card makers and other companies take advantage of valentines day to make more money than they do on a daily basis

The Ugly:

More People are Likely to commit suicide (The Suicide Hotline Receives Twice as Many Calls On Valentines Day)
People are known to feel negative and depressed feelings
