The Morphing of Valentine's Day
When I was young, in elementary school, Valentines Day was a cute little event where boys and girls exchanged some simple, basic little coloured notes that we cut out of pre-bought 'Valentine' sheets. By noon it was over. There may have been a few valentine cookies from your Mom and that was about it.
NOW ... this simple children's exercise has morphed into a major consumer and commercial enterprise. Valentines' Day ... I HATE IT!
