<3 Make V Day a Public Holiday in Singapore <3
Better than the coarse warnings on declining fertility, and the robotic match-making, can we finally do something that works??? I believe, making Valentine's day a yearly public holiday will help to Singaporeans reproduce.
Well, from previous years data on live births, it seems to suggest that Dec-Feb is where more effective copulation occurs (http://www.ica.gov.sg/page.aspx?pageid=427). It cannot be a coincidence! I think the festivities put people in the mood for love. Now, we should be compelled to milk the romance of V day more, being the pragmatic Singaporeans that we are. Why waste a good season of love love love on OTs, annoyance and other inconveniences at work????? Just let people have fun, sleep in, deal with the morning woods that is practically a luxury on most other days. Come on, Singaporeans are planners and even plan when to do their happy thing (http://lifestyle.toggle.sg/zh/relationships/news/8...). Having an extra Public Holiday is a felt need, proven by the ginormous support this petition will have. There is no huge budget needed to print demeaning data on MRTs. And this will give them ample time to do that happy thing that they need to. A copious amount of copulation, is the (partial) answer to low birth rates.
Perhaps you might wonder, what would one day of difference do? It sets a culture, a clear sign, a clarion call, that the state is really more interested in her man than manpower. YES. COME ON.
Some of the possible negative repercussions could be a decline in economy, but please, this economy will fail if the population pyramid continues to be inverted. https://wasatchecon.wordpress.com/2010/08/24/inver... So the pragmatic mind would KNOW that this argument does not hold water.
Well, before you accuse me of being liberal, lets be holistic in this whole Public Holiday. Let us plan how we keep the raging hormonal kids away from ineffectual sexual activities. We have V for vacation camps for them, mono-ed styled. Teach them the birds and the bees, delayed gratification.
Don't let St Valentine die in vain. Make it a public holiday.
