Everyone celebrates Valentine’s Day differently with food, music, movies, etc. Whatever and however you celebrate, here are 5 things you must avoid on Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day has arrived and how you spend it may be quite different from others. Maybe you’re going out to a fancy dinner with your sweetheart – or perhaps it’s family night at home. Maybe you and a furry friend have a date with Netflix or you are curled up alone with your favorite book.
5 things you should absolutely avoid on Valentine’s Day.
one. these movies.
There are so many awful love stories that require a box of tissues or entire bottle of wine to watch. Romance movies can be the worst, like The Fault in Our Stars and Titanic, when there is death or a terrible ending involved. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wasted an evening watching a depressing love story that should’ve come with a disclaimer. Here are 6 Movies to Steer Clear of on V Day, 10 Movies to Avoid on the Day of Love, and 8 Films to Turn Off on Valentine’s Day.
two. these songs.
I don’t care who you are, but there are some love songs that bring nothing but tears and depression to a person’s mind upon listening. I’ll never forget the first time I heard, “Tears in Heaven” and sobbed my eyes out when I was just 8 years old. Obviously the song written for Eric Clapton’s deceased son is not categorized under ‘Valentine’s Day Hits,’ but it is about the love he has for his son. Here are some more songs you should avoid on Valentine’s Day.
three. these foods.
Whoever said fresh garlic should be an ingredient in a romantic recipe should be slapped. There is nothing romantic about sour breath or stinky sweat. Beans, hot dogs, and anything with seeds can be tragic for your digestive system and teeth. Here are foods to avoid on Valentine’s Day, a list of Vibe-Killing Foods to Avoid, and more foods you should never eat on Valentine’s Day.
four. these places.
If you’re single (and not happy about it), then most restaurants are an absolute NO when it comes to dining out on Valentine’s Day. Who wants to eat a meal surrounded by lovebirds? Here are the worst places to go on Valentine’s Day. If you’re looking for somewhere to take your Valentine, don’t forget Chick-Fil-A is closed on Sundays and Subway at Walmart is not romantic.
five. these gifts.
Gift giving does not have to be a requirement for celebrating Valentine’s Day, but many people believe it’s essential. In my marriage, we exchange cards and maybe treat ourselves to a delicious meal. For our daughters, we give them a candy and a card. If you’re looking for a last minute Valentine’s Day gift, avoid anything weight related, an I.O.U., or any of these hilarious items.
