De-railing Valentines Day

These people have entirely too much time on their hands.

Yes, well they're setting a WONDERFUL example for their youth...

Eh. With America's crusades against 'The Gay' in the name of morality and religious principle, I can't really look at this and think "Whoa, they're weird!"

Interesting story, though.

It's hard for us to understand cultures and beliefs so different from ours. But, I guess they're standing for their principles. I don't agree, but I'm not a Muslim.

I don't like Valentine's day. Unlike any other holiday only certain people are allowed to celebrate it (couples with money). I used to envy all those people who celebrate Valentine'd Day when I was single....but even now we still never celebrate Valentine's days because we are so broke.

It is just a commercialized holiday to make money, in my opinion.

When I was living in a ladies dorm I have heard some stories about guys who dump their girlfriends just before Valentine's Day so they don't have to celebrate it. So much for celebrating the people you love

I remember when I was little there was no such thing as Valentine's Day...then one day there was a commercial that said "if you don't give your girl a Ferros Rocher banquet for Valentine's Day, you don't love her"


Nowadays there are "novelty" stores. So much for moral Decay

For the most part, I've always found Valentines Day stupid. I don't need a pre-set "love day" to give my bf cheaply-made, overpriced, cutesy baubles to show that I love him, nor does he need it. I simply ignore it's existence and do special things for him on completely random days.

Shengmei, I'm much older than you, and I don't remember any time that there wasn't a Valentine's Day. In elementary school we decorated a box and put a valentine in it for each child in the class. Perhaps that wasn't allowed in your school.
