    No, Cathy, it’s that Valentine’s Day emphasizes overdone maudlin displays of romantic sentiment, which men don’t do. What men do to celebrate Superbowl Sunday isn’t even remotely analogous to what you expect us to do on Valentine’s Day

    Unfortunately, she’s right. If Valentine’s day was a sport, men would be first in line to buy something for it. lol

    I’m not going to get into the men vs. women argument. I feel like most people who are in a loving relationship have no problem with having a special day to celebrate their love, whether it be an anniversary, a birthday or Valentine’s day. But if BOTH people in the couple feel it’s a forced holiday, then that’s fine too.

    Happy Sunday, Cathy friends!

    Well said lightenup. I don’t like to be forced on a certain day either, but make the effort anyway. Have to show love, what else is there?

    Actually, both Mother’s Day and Father’s Day were started by individuals with noble intentions, and then the holidays were co-opted by the candy makers, florists, card companies, and whatever other companies who thought they could sell something themed to those holidays. I still like them. You can observe any holiday you want with a heartfelt, hand-written note to your chosen recipient telling them what they mean to you. Let the money-spending go and you might actually enjoy ALL the holidays this year!

    A man named Valentine was put in prison for teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. While in prison, he wrotes notes concerning God’s love for them to the christian followers and tossed them to the people outside his prison window. He wouldn’t stop so he was killed, martyred. Then he was called a saint.

    That’s the original reason for the (Saint Valentines Day) season.

    Hi Cathyites!! Well it is true that folks (not just men) have no trouble expressing themselves over sports — telling their significant other that they love them on one or two days a year won’t kill anybody.

    Mothering Sunday was once the day of the year when young people who had left home to work were allowed a day off to go home and visit their mothers, and go to their mother church together. Traditionally, a Simnel cake was baked and eaten to celebrate the day.

    But . . . that was hundreds of years ago, before greetings cards had been invented.
