    I wouldn't say I love it but I like it. Each to their own. What annoys me more about Valentines Day are the people who give the same old 'oh it's just a commercial money maker' - oh bore off.

    This exactly. Actually no, this plus the "CHOCOLATE!!!!" answer.

    I love it! It's a nice sweet romantic day for couples to give each other cute little chocolates and teddies and snuggle while watching bad movies and if you're single then you can just veg out with bad movies and chocolate or friends or something and it's still super fun

    Mostly I like it for the chocolate is what I'm saying

    I'll get my gf some stuffs.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    Denmark and I are getting dressed up and going to a nice dinner. It's mostly just an excuse for us to have a date night.

    I've never personally been interested in doing a super romantic Valentine's Day, but if people enjoy it, more power to them! As long as it's not forced romance, blegh.

    I'm single so I don't really care about the holiday itself. But I love all the cheap candies afterwards though.

    You are missing the option of: "Valentine's Day is okay, but ever think of the jerk hole?"

    I'm pretty indifferent about Valentine's Day now. I've been single/haven't gone on any dates/etc since high school. Nothing about it is special to me. When I did have a girlfriend, I would put flowers and other goodies in her locker in high school. I would do things like that year round though. Otherwise, it was just an excuse to go on a date. Fun stuff.

    Valentine's Day in elementary school was the best, though. We always had a little party and I'd get chocolate and everyone would hand out valentines. The valentines weren't that exciting, but my grandma and I would always create our own valentines box thing to put the cards in, and they were always pretty spectacular. I'd say the best was the 3 foot paper mache Pikachu box we made one year. Unfortunately it doesn't exist anymore because a few years ago mice got into it and my parents threw it away.

    Valentines Day is fine.

    Matt and I don't do very much to celebrate it though, as our anniversary falls a few days beforehand, and we do something more fancy for that as opposed to Valentines.

    It's kinda dumb. It would mean a whole lot more to any gender if you picked a random day in September to do the things you do on Valentine's Day. A day set aside that forces you to do and expect it takes away the romanticism people claim it has.

    I don't go all crazy on Vengeance Day but it's a fun little event where you take a little extra time to be sweet with your sweetheart. That's always good. Sure it's consumerist, but uh if that's a problem, I got news, every day is Maximum Consumerism.

    Truth! I'm not sure why Valentine's Day gets so much slack for being consumerist, when basically every major holiday has a market.

    Valentines day is a dumb holiday. And I don't say that just because I'm currently single. Even when I was in relationships I thought it was dumb. But maybe that is because I treat multiple days throughout the year as such without such fuss.

    I really love Valentine's Day. I know it's commercialized but so what? I'm buying chocolates and flowers and dinners to the man I love, which more than justifies it.

    I suppose if you were single, then I guess it can be slightly grating though.
