Yes, Valentine's Day as we know it has been blown up into a huge marketing ploy to get people to buy things, but I think it's nice to remember that the holiday is actually St. Valentine's Day. For those of us for whom saints have meaning, there is a deeper significance to the day than just candy, hearts, and romance (or lack thereof).

I like Valentine's Day.

Commercialization is funny.

I don't have one, doesn't really bother me

I think you should celebrate all the love you have in your life, not just romantic love.

I erased eveything I said trying to edit it.

and you responded.

recap: little valentine greetings prolly cost less than one US penny, and made by either a big machine, or some poor children in a third world country about the same age as Lucky Charm's own children.

Sorry if I seem like a Valentine's day scrooge....but, if you look at what is really going on...corporations are being the scrooges...forcing people into these "sad" or "depressed" feelings because they are not getting attention/gifts from a partner on this fabricated "special" day.

as a good friend would say, "bah."

Aw zoney dahlink…no offense taken of course..would you like to smack me upside the head to go with that senseless shaking…

..of course….my opinions should be lightly taken…..I happen to have had this conversation with my eldest as we were going over her list..checking it twice..and she said to me..Mommy….where are your cards…Ill help you..and I said to her…I don’t have any….and she said to me matter of factly..ha ha I have more friends than you do…hence the comment…..I certainly know I am blessed with many friends both close and distant….and wishes don’t need to come through cards 1 day out of every year…silly dahlink…here…..have a timbit…

I've never really liked the day, but i don't let it depress me either. This year, I actually am amused by the couples running around, trying to do special stuff...it's a bit ridiculous. The only good part of it all is the candy...and you don't have to be in a couple to eat the candy...mmmm, chocolate.

"Mom, romance is dead. It was acquired in a hostile takeover by Hallmark and Disney, homogenized, and sold off piece by piece."


I don't really care one way or another about Valentine's Day.
All the single girls on my floor are having a "let's get together and whine about how nobody likes us" night, but like zoney said, I don't see the point of getting all worked up about such a commercialized day. I've been single every other day of the year and that doesn't bother me either.

Plus Groundhog Day is a better February holiday anyway.
