Someone as old as me seems to recall St Valentine's Day was about expressing secret love, you send a card or note to someone signed.."from a secret admirer"
The chocolate, lingerie, dinner and things exchanged with a spouse or regular lover is a relatively new thing bought to you by Hallmark and KMart...don't believe the hype!!
I heard...on the radio
that it began as with most festivals, in pagan Rome. It was a day when a man and woman were matched up for the following year by drawing their names at random . Not quite sure of Valentine's story and why he was canonised and what he has to do with love. Anybody ? Anybody?
My friend has a cat called Valentine

I heard Dean Martin on the radio first thing this morning
That's Amore.......
everybody loves somebody.............sometime

I'll just leave shall I...I'm gonna go to the couch...

I LUVS YOUSE ALL

They gave me plenty of Aragorn and Legolas, which is nice. But not alot of Ents, Gandalf or Frodos...

Those boxes are a real rip-off compared to when I was a kid. You don't even get envelopes anymore, or the themed stickers.

Oooooh


Really? That sucks.

I saw a box of Wonder Woman ones at Borders last Saturday, but I passed.

Before I was ever attached to anyone romantically, my mom and I would eat a red dinner for Valentine's day. Similarly, we eat a green dinner on St. Patrick's Day, and an orange dinner on Halloween. I always exchange Valentines with my mom, wear one of my heart necklaces (I have a very nice pewter one), and of course something red. It's been that way since I was a toddler.

It's just a fun way to spend the day....of course love should be celebrated all year, just like you're supposed to love your parents all year, but there's mothers and fathers days....it's just a way to bring extra attention to it. I don't feel sucked in by commercialism at all.

Of course, I totally understand why it depresses people.

I was wondering what this thread was about. Today I was sharing an apple and custard danish with a German water engineer who informed me that in the USA St Valentines day is really huge. And that people give cards etc to everyone they love eg Mum, Dad, etc. In Australia its a romance day intended for lovers only not for errr giving your Mum a card. As for mechandise in the stores, we go from Xmas, to Back to Shool, to Easter - no Valentines kerfuffle. Weird

So wait, what you're saying is, I shouldn't be depressed JUST when I see marketing materials in a display case.

Instead, I should be depressed EVERYDAY because I'm single.

Zoney, you have made me proud.

I like it

I had a winderful surprise when i got home from work today. There at my front door was a beautiful flower arrangement. When I opened up the card to see who it was from, it said love, Richard, your brother. It made my day!

In all seriousness, I really miss being able to go to a store and walk down two full aisles of holiday merchandise...and all the specialty chocolates....like Valentine's Reese's Pieces and M&M's...and the fact that afterwards everything is 50-75% off...

Easter is the best holiday for that. I used to always joke that I was going to get a boyfriend just for Easter to buy me everything in the Easter aisles, then I'd dump him the day after.

I started a Valentine's day single people thread two years ago and got two replies.

I'm the biggest loser on this forum!
