Happy Valentine's Day to all - not just for lovers

Wishing you all a Lots of Love on Valentine's Day.

Here in the UK, Valentine's Day seems to be celebrated 'between  Lovers'. The whole week there were special features on TV (yes, I've got lots of time to watch daytime TV!) about couples finding each other, marriage proposals en mass etc). And the ominous -- oh how sad it must be if you don't have a lover, especially on Valentine's Day --. Now, I don't agree with that at all. Just because you don't have a lover doesn't mean you are desperately sad, indeed I think for some of you, you are more happy on your own.

I have heard somewhere (not sure if this is true) that in North America Valentine's Day is seen more as a celebration of Love - and that is all kind of love e.g. the love for your mother, your siblings, your friends, your pets. I would very much like to pledge for Valentine's Day to celebrate all kinds of love.

Honestly I am not sure what Valentine's Day celebrates in the USA anymore. We start seeing Valentine's stuff in the store right after Christmas (Heck some srores put it out before Christmas was over) and every year it is a bigger push for more presents and such. On Television there are a lot of "love" movies and things like that. There is quite a push for cards, candies, etc. I'm just as happy if DH comes home and gives me a kiss as I am with a card or chocolates. LOL
