I got a bit over-excited about having re-discovered my sewing machine and decided to use it to make some valentines cards. I sent ones to my my family and gave one to my boyfriend.
I quite enjoy valentines day. My boyfriend less so, so this was his card. Happy arbitrary day of love!
In the same way I love Christmas without being religious I think anything that encourages people to be nice to one another and show that they care is a good thing. And yes I know rampant commercialism, why only appreciate someone on one day, making single people feel bad etc. etc. blah blah blah but I'm with the Oatmeal on this one.
Although from experience and talking to the girls at work I think xkcd has modern valentines day pretty much in a nutshell
