Valentine's Day is a holiday celebrated on February 14. In North America, it is the traditional day on which lovers express their love for each other by sending Valentine's cards, presenting flowers, or offering confectionery. The holiday is named after two among the numerous Early Christian martyrs named Valentine. ......... source Wikipedia
My definition of Valentine's Day is:
A day that florists, confectioners, and Hallmark go laughing all the way to the bank. It is also a day when people spend lots of hard-earned money at restuarants for "so-so" food at exhorbitant prices just to try to show the love of their life that they are important to them.
It is also a day where the unattached, or those without any suitors, are made to feel more aware of their status.
As you can see, I dont quite believe in celebrating Valentine's Day. I feel that you can show your love everyday, and you should. Flowers, chocolates, cards and dinners are welcome all day, everyday! No need to wait for that one day to spend more than necessary to show it.
Anyway, Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

I remember Sister Valentine - a fat jolly nun in my school that was in charge of a CCA called "Joyful Vanguard" and she taught music. She hailed from Ireland, and always had funny stories to share. She was always around to help the younger children settle into school. How we enjoyed going to her music studio in the nun's quarters, as she always had some goodies stashed away for those of us who visited her. Sister V has since returned to join the Lord. I remember you Sister V!
