Valentine's Day has an interesting history but nobody seems to know when or where the love angle originated. It really doesn't matter, does it? It reminds us of Love anyway, and that's what's truly important, being reminded of Love.
My favorite Valentine is sitting in the next room watching a football game and making Whoop!Whoop! noises in between nibbles of game day pizza. On Valentine Day he will "surprise" me with a flower, kiss me , and tell me he adores me. Then, while I am at work he will search the house looking for the tin of sugar free heart shaped cookies that he knows I have stashed somewhere...and when I get home, there will be two left in the tin...that he saved for me
Yeah, it is still corny but... corny is good.
