Valentine’s Day brings out the fun

IF YOU didn't wake up to roses and chocolates or perhaps something even better yesterday, do not fret - you were not alone.

Just as Christmas can be the saddest of times for those without families or loved ones, Valentine's Day can make some singles feel the pinch of their romance paucity.

Not to be bowed down by the barrage of love and kisses and red roses this week, the singles have fought back.

Facebook has given the lonely, the bored and the fed-up-with-the-hype a public forum to voice their discontent and have a bit of fun.

The social media network is no shrine to human intelligence mind you, but it had a few gems this week from those who were less than enthusiastic about the impending love fest.

"I've got a date for Valentine's Day," quipped one single. "February 14."

Another single bought herself a bag of cookies (sic) from McDonalds yesterday, wrapped them in a brown paper bag and hid them in her house so she could "discover" them on her pillow later in the day.

It was a lovely surprise, she joked.

Valentine's Day is a bit of fun, and it's great to see most people can find a way to get into it.
