    it's a fake holiday created by corporate america designed to get a bunch of 3rd graders to buy a box of cards and a bunch of candy.

    then on top of that, some poor guy is going to forget and get *****ed at by his wife/girlfriend/baby mama.

    it's the same thing as halloween, just the other end of the spectrum. instead of ghosts and goblins it's hearts and puppy dogs.

    dont fall for it. if everyone ignores it, it will go away.

    I read Martha Stewart's Living before Valentines Day to get laid, and it worked, so don't even laugh. I turned twigs into flowers and crap like that. It became an annual thing for me. Pretty much gold. I did make the mistake of buying comfortable underware for the woman one year, just to see what would happen, and then I wasn't allowed to buy lingerie anymore, but she was comfortable and happy. she just wasn't in the mood.

    That may be true, but a genuine atmosphere is mos def created for a lot of people, me included. I don't mind treating my girl extra special, even if it isn't paticularly important to either of us. Negative attitudes tend to put people into a **** mood about everything though, holidays are no different.

    I live with a married couple, and they DO NOT "celebrate" it for the same reasons that 53279 posted.

    It is a stupid-**sed holiday created for economic gain. But here in America, ALL holidays are for economic gain. "Black Friday" is called that for a reason...it's the day the retailer's books get back in the black.

    As surprising as it may be, Valentine's Day was not the brainchild of American industry, rather it apparently has roots far back before the US even existed.

    They named a massacre after it for a reason.
