my understanding of it was that it was a chance for your to sieze the day and profess your love for someone who you weren't with, rather than the celebration of love that it seems to be.
And when did it become a holiday? I've had 3 texts to day from people wishing me a Happy Valentines Day, like it was my birthday.
Is this assumption wrong? Maybe I'm just being a grumpy fucker with nothing better to do today.
