Ok, that's not entirely true I don't "HATE" the day, but I do strongly dislike the day. I do believe that Valentine's Day is a contrived holiday made up by the people who brought us Hallmark Cards and Chocolate. I don't understand the significance of this day. Why should we tell people in our lives that we love them on February 14th when we should be telling them on the other 364 days of the year? I refuse to celebrate this day. There is no historical significance to this day. None what so ever. I hated having to sign Valentine's Day cards for all my classmates in Elementary School. I just don't get it, plus in today's economy why should people drop a few thousand dollars on jewelry and flowers etc. instead of saving it and going on a trip later in the year?
