“If you don’t have a valentine on Valentine’s Day, don’t be sad”

A Valentine’s Day saying is:

“If you don’t have a valentine on Valentine’s Day, don’t be sad. Most people don’t have AIDS on World AIDS Day as well.”

The saying—popular in India—was posted on Twitter on March 15, 2012 and has been printed on many images.


Wikipedia: Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is an annual holiday celebrated on February 14. It originated as a Western Christian liturgical feast day honoring one or more early saints named Valentinus, and is recognized as a significant cultural and commercial celebration in many regions around the world, although it is not a public holiday in any country.

Wikipedia: World AIDS Day
World AIDS Day, designated on 1 December every year since 1988, is dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection, and mourning those who have died of the disease. Government and health officials, non-governmental organizations and individuals around the world observe the day, often with education on AIDS prevention and control.

14 February 2014, The Times of India (Online), “We’re single and happy this Valentine’s Day” by Shiba Kurian:
“If you don’t have a Valentine on Valentine’s Day, don’t be sad. Most people don’t have AIDS on World AIDS Day,” says Saniya, a single woman in the city. This is one of the several responses we got when we quizzed youngsters on their plans for V-Day today.
