    I'm happy for you and all, but, uh, it's just odd to read in one of your journal entries, at the same time, a reference to your protestant faith, and a reference to a 100% roman catholic celebration (the day dedicated to St Valentine, saint of lovers). ;-)

      There's at least two VD holidays.

      Most major holidays have a commercial counterpart which happens on the same day of the original holiday, but is primarily concerned with the production/purchasing of mass-produced merchandise (particularly chocolate products in holiday-styled wrappers).

          our local grocery store has a section for these holiday chocolates. It's never empty. Any time of year you can buy your familiar Dove chocolates, Reses peanut butter cups, York pepermint patties, or M and Ms in some 'special' seasonal wrapper. Right now, the section has 50% marked-down Valentine's candy, but I'm sure that once it's gone they'll have green shamrock wrappers around the same candies.

          At the same time, two rows over you can buy teddy bears with green scarfs instead of the pink ones they wore last week, you can buy paper plates and house decorations to fit the holiday, and you can find new drinks on special at the bars.

          As long as folks have stuff to sell, I imagine every holiday will have a commercial counterpart. :/
