Anti-Valentine’s Day Party
For those who do not participate in Valentine’s Day, throw an Anti-Valentine’s Party. Buy a few bottles of cheap wine and invite friends over to celebrate freedom and independence. Play some punk rock or some rap music and get crazy. Let all of the Anti-Valentine’s Day rage out by playing some egg Russian roulette. Get a dozen eggs, Boil only 11 and take turns smashing them on the heads of party patrons.
