It's a bragging holiday in my opinion. Valentine's Day is one of the most speculated days to shower your girlfriend/boyfriend/S. O. in gifts and sappy gestures one wouldn't normally do. And because it's just a big day that everyone raves about, it pressures others to go and find a special someone just for that day so they don't feel lonely. It almost feels like all eyes are on you (for taken people) since you just HAVE to do something nice for your S. O. or else you're a dickhead who doesn't care about them. Now with social media involved and most likely everyone posting about their gifts and happiness around that time, that adds a bit of competition level between couples. All-in-all, it somewhat is lacking in the true meaning of love during that day. I agree with you when you say: "I don't understand why everyone is obsessed about it." People who are too wild over it need to relax and realize it's just another day.
