In Part 1, we discussed the graphic history of Valentine’s Day. Born in blood and sacrificial debauchery, this day of hearts harbors happier thoughts today. Visions of cupid and candy, roses and red teddy bears are cute, but are they really the heart of the homicidal holiday?
To serve justice and honor the darker side of this romantic respite, OTM brings you a very special “heart-felt” holiday guide, ensuring a Valentine’s Day to die for. (Some items may not be suitable for young eyes or work environments)
A sentimental serenade starts off our story and can help set that killer Valentine’s Day celebration.

Vegan Treats offers this elegant arrangement of spooky Valentine Chocolates (order by 2/9 and be prepared to spend $87 -$115).
Perhaps you want to get ahead in your relationship – these chocolate skulls are a no brainer (according to Chocolate Skulls.com, they’re cast from an ACTUAL HUMAN SKULL).

Desire the debauchery of the Roman holiday, give a hint with Kama Sutra chocolates from Firebox (or the strong of heart – Firebox, also offers –not pictured here- an edible anus).
Trinkets are also an accepted admiration announcement:
Teddy Bears are so cliche’ – honor the animal in you and remember that sacrificial offerings were once a part of the holiday, a zombie teddy (as seen on Amazon) seems like a much more memorable memento.
Equally overdone is jewelry. Why not really put some heart into it with this pendant from Amazon.
Finally, flowers are always a good stand by – don’t be chicken; go the extra mile
Going out for an overpriced meal can be disheartening, do something different
