Is Valentine's Day Really Necessary?

I think it's just a silly marketing gimmick that people (especially men) fall for.

It was invented by Card companies to boost their post-Xmas sales

Seriously, it's meaningless and causes more harm than good!

one - to send a message to people that they should love each other more (of course, a lot of people can only do nice things with family and friends during holidays; on other days, they have to go to work)
two - to spend the cash you have earned during the working weeks...

So true about the card companies.

Valentines doesn't bother me although I can understand how it distresses single people who want to be in relationships.
