Is Valentines day a scam?
Valentines day was created when a priest named Valentine who risked his life by marrying people in Rome after it was made illegal. He was executed for it on Feb. 14. So it is real! Some think it's a scam created by the candy and greeting card company. I do agree it is over commercialized like every other holiday. I don't see anything wrong with a day dedicated to love. If you truely love someone, why can't you show it everyday?

Nice, Romeo. All day, every day.

As far as Valentine....

He probably performed the weddings in the hopes he'd have unfettered access to the kids born of the marriages down the road.

Oh, wait, that's always been a perk for the church.

check your history op

originally, valentines day was when married women can have sexual relations with men other than their husbands, generally, the first man that approached them that day.

it celebrates womens liberation, but has been twisted like xmas by americans for profit from consumers.

Re: Is Valentines day a scam?
I'm sure DeBeers has alot to do with it....

Some of these downtown jewelry districts, I dunno how they can sit on so much inventory and stay in business.

Then again, I think that about every mom and pop shop as I drive past.. how in the fuck can they stay in business?!

I know of a guy that bought his girlfriend two tires for VD and the following month he bought the other two for her birthday.
