ahhhh...romance is in the air....or not... It might just be the whiff of chocolate that gets you through the day on Feb 14...or that fat little cherub who has nothing to do with St Valentine...

Valentine's Day was a plot by the Greeting Card Industrial Complex to sell more insipid cards in the middle of winter. Valentine's Day isn't really a holiday. Christmas is over-commercialized, but its still a legitimate celebration of an actual event. Saint Valentine was a Christian martyr who was clubbed, stoned and beheaded by the Romans. How does that even connect to a day that's supposed to be about romance?
