i've never heard of "chocolate day", "kisses day" or anything else like that. On the 14th, you give your sweetheart any/all the above (ok, women seldom give men flowers).

Of course, you can give them these gifts any other day of the year, too!!!

Just like Christmas, Halloween, Easter and just about every other seasonal celebration, Valentine's day has been hijacked by the corporations and turned into a frenzy of commercial guilt-tripping. The worst example is Father's day which is a complete money making fabrication invented to extract more cash from us.

When I look in the windows of restaurants near where I live, every single one of them has doubled their prices for Valentine's day. Its a nice thought isn't it - a day dedicated to love, but its celebrated by restaurant owners getting a bumper pay day.

It seems like there is always an upcoming celebration being pushed by the shops. As soon as one thing finishes, another starts. Its pretty much guaranteed that on the 15th of February, the Valentine's day displays will immediately be replaced with Easter stuff. Its as if they want to keep us lurching from one "special occasion" to another, with there always being a special day just around the corner which needs money thrown at it.
