in response to reader comment: Educate yourself

Outrageous, a day set aside to glorify "Love", and commercialized no less. Oh, the shame of it all. Lets take it slowly, so as not to be confused. America has chosen ' capitalism' as an economic engine because it COMMERCIALIZES products and services , makes those products and services widely available, for a uniform cost, to bring choice and variety to your pathetic life. What is so hard to understand. Americans believe that goods and services should be made available to the widest possible population, at a fair price.

Now comes the 'exploitation' and 'commercialization', why would you deny the celebration of human love and attraction, heart shapes, chocolate, exchange of gifts, what is objectionble about it.? No one is forcing anyone to observe Valentines day,
