Here's dadloff:

"You have a warped sense of what valentines day is all about. When we were young and in grade school, we would give valentine cards to everyone in the class including girls, boys and teachers. As we grew older, we would give cards to those that were special to us. As we grew even older, we would give valentine cards to those we loved and cared about, including wives, mothers, daughters, sisters, even fathers,sons, brothers and close friends. You are so far off base to think that showing this kind of affection and love is to cover up something that we did wrong, and that we need to buy candy, flowers and jewelry to make things right. Did it ever occur to you that most of us do these things just to show our love and affection to the people we love and care about on this special day. Remember, valentines day was made so we can outwardly show our love to the ones we really care about. Most of us do these things all year long, not just one day a year. Get a life and accept the fact that most of us like this special day of the year to express our love and affection to the ones we really care about, not to cover up wrong doings as you seem to think."

Hmm... okay, Dloff. I hear you. Guess I watched too many episodes of The Honeymooners and The Flintstones when I was growing up. By the way, the day was originally a pagan festival that was renamed after two Early Christian martyrs named Valentine. No romantic elements are present in the original early medieval biographies of either of these martyrs.
