Hallmark Holiday?

Ganun daw ang V-day. Waheheh.

Just a few thoughts:

- There is more than one St. Valentine. Therfore "Happy Valentines' Day" is more correct than Happy Valentine's Day." Even if we only celebrate the feast of one of these "Saint Valentines." And so Wiki I quoth...
"Saint Valentine refers to one or more martyred saints of ancient Rome. The feast of Saint Valentine was formerly celebrated on February 14 by the Roman Catholic Church until the revised calendar 1969.
His birth date and birthplace are unknown. Valentine's name does not occur in the earliest
list of Roman martyrs, that was compiled by the Chronographer of 354.
The feast of St. Valentine was first decreed in 496 by
Pope Gelasius I, who included Valentine among those "... whose names are justly reverenced among men, but whose acts are known only to God." As Gelasius implied, nothing is known about the lives of any of these martyrs."

- Valentines' Day is, therefore, technically a Christian holiday, one (like Christmas) exploited by greeting card companies, stuffed toy stores and flower shops.

- The heart shape that usually comes to one's mind looks almost nothing like the real heart. It looks more like the imprint of someone's ass.

- It is the hypothalamus, and not the heart, that controls the chemical functions that cause emotions. Now, try replacing the word "heart" with "hypothalamus" in all of the love songs you know. :D

- Red has a large wavelength and small frequency. XD Red is the supposed color of love. Red is also the color associated with anger. And a synonym of anger is "mad." Therefore love is madness. :D Joke lang.
