There's nothing wrong with celebrating Valentine's, but it depends on how it's celebrated. In theory, it's a holiday about loving and appreciating your partner, and it's supposed to go both ways between men and women. In reality, though it's about men going out of their way to spend money and do sweet things for their girlfriends/fiancees/wives, and usually getting nothing in return. The only things a woman seems to do for her man on Valentine's are fucking him a little bit better than usual (wearing new, pretty lingerie that HE probably bought in the first place), and maybe cooking him a nice dinner. It's ridiculous how one-sided it is.

I don't disagree with the concept, I just dislike how consumer focused the holiday has become. It's all about hearts and cholocates and bears and flowers and cards and everything red and pink that we can sell to you for a markup price for two weeks. It's pretty exploitative and overall unhealthy for what the concept of what Valentine's Day should be.
