Valentines Day, everyone's love it (or hate it) holiday, is here.  And my intention was to clearly express that I  totally get where the haters are coming from- it's commercial, it's  kitschy.  But number 1: there is historical basis for the holiday & number 2: any day is a good day to express love and/or appreciation.
