Valentine's week leaves all the singles annoyed for all the right reasons. Valentine's is all about love, the vibe is all mushy, partners pamper each other with red roses, chocolates, love cards, gifts and whatnot. All to express their feelings for their loved ones. As sweet as it might sound, it irks those who are still a part of singledom.
That's why singles celebrate Anti-Valentine's Week once the lovey-dovey Valentine's week concludes. Unlike the week of love, this one is a celebration for singles, heartbroken and those who 'hate love'. The celebrations begin on February 15, just a day after the most romantic day of the year, Valentine's Day.
