History of St. Skeletor's Day

St. Skeletor's Day is a chance for singles; it's the day for everyone who didn't date or received any flowers yesterday on Valentine's Day, and is basically the antithesis of that day. Richard Herring, a British comedian created it in 1998. He said St. Skeletor's Day is both for all people who have no one to love and for the ravages of love. This day is not for greeting cards, and let's boyfriends and girlfriends. It's not a day to buy people gifts or do anything special. That's what people do on Valentine's Day! This day takes its name from Skeletor, the villain in the Masters of the Universe. Surely he has never celebrated Valentine's Day.

How to Observe St. Skeletor's Day

If you didn't celebrate Valentine's Day yesterday, you're on your way to celebrating Saint Skeletor's Day today! Richard Herring has said that this day gives you the chance to push people holding hands into a puddle, send a card to someone you hate, and break up a relationship without any explanation. It's a day to ruin love in general and to disrupt the commerciality of Valentine's Day. If you are alone, the day is for you. However, you can spend the day with friends, as it is possible to throw parties on St. Skeletor's Day.
