It’s Valentine’s Day, folks! To celebrate this lovey-dovey occasion, we’ve been enjoying everything from a romantic witch house DJ mix to love-themed DIY projects to Downton Abbey Valentine’s cards. Now, it’s time to honor those who might be slightly less enthusiastic about the annual February festivities. Y’know — those who would rather toy with others’ restaurant reservations and invent alternative holidays for the 14th. Anna Howard Shaw Day, anyone? Check out a collection of TV characters who hate Valentine’s Day after the jump, and hit the comments to let us know of the other lovable Valentine’s Grinches that have graced your TV screen.
Liz Lemon, 30 Rock
“Valentine’s is the worst. It’s even worse than Earth Day. You just see so many dirty feet in sandals.” — Liz Lemon
If there’s one thing we know for sure about Liz Lemon, it’s that Valentine’s Day is her least favorite holiday. Proclaiming, “Valentine’s Day is a sham created by greeting card companies to reinforce gender stereotypes,” Liz even goes as far as to invent Anna Howard Shaw Day, a holiday celebrating the February 14th birthday of women’s suffrage leader Anna Howard Shaw. But wait, did we really see Ms. Lemon succumb to the sweet Valentine’s antics of James Marsden on last week’s episode? Maybe, but our favorite “night cheese” enthusiast still insists that Valentine’s Day is worse than dirty Teva feet.
