I hate it! Everyone feels obliged to buy a card and present, restaurants charge triple the amount they normally do, and its not AT ALL romantic!

I would rather someone told me they loved me because THEY WANTED TO, not because Hallmark greeting cards say THEY HAVE TO

I loved the original reason for it - it was for people who wanted to get together with someone to declare their love (mostly anonomously). Not for people already together to send cards offfffff!

What do YOU think?

lol!!! To funny aenigma... who can argue with that logic. Are you the Valentines day scrooge It is definatly over rated, not to mention I sure as hell don't want any chocolate after gaining my holiday weight. I'm on a diet, so the people in my life have been warned!

I am not a scrooge. I love to buy surprise presents and cards - not EXPECTED ones!!! And its got so crazy - I saw cards recently like "Happy Valentines day to my Best Friend", "Happy Valentines Day to my Mum" and even "Happy Valentines day to my Dog"!!!

No chocolates? Ooops. Is it too late to cancel the box I sent you and your "Happy Valentines Day to my TC Friend" Card?

Exactly, I love to shop and suprise even on Christmas I go crazy, but it is weird that now there are cards even for coworkers and such, as if I haven't spent enough for xmas. So you bought me that Happy V-day to my TC friend one huh? I think I saw that right next to the Happy V-day to My Garbage Man one, how sweet of you I certainly hope it was diet chocolates only

Diet ones?

And...... I HATE ROSES! Offffff, again they suddenly charge triple for a horrible "forced into bud" red rose that never actually opens into a flower because it's been so hastily grown... and roses are horrible horrible, blousey, insipid, unoriginal flowers!!!

Ummm...however I am not averse to receiving tulips or white cala lily's.....

What?!?!?!?!?!
Sorry ladies...I love Valentine's Day!

Still love the day and yes..I love roses and chocolates and well....just a wonderful day to express love.

But, then I'm big on Christmas and Thanksgiving too....so I guess i'm just a holiday fanatic!!!!

Any reason to eat...and something sweet too!!! IT'S ALL GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But in my family we aren't so traditional...we call aunts, uncles, cousins, siblings, mom etc. and send valentine's to them too! So it's a family love day...not just the romantic one.

In my country Valentine's Day was never a big deal so I don't care about that in particular but it happens so that we have a tradition of going ice skating and various other things on that day so that's why it's special to us.
