Seems like an important world holiday, but it's just a big load of bullshit, where companies profit off of those people who are insane enough to buy their girlfriend/spouse $400 Digital Cameras or iPods. On this day, your romantic abilities are proportional to the size of your bank account.
Also known to make single people more depressed and angry. One of the stupidest holidays of our pop culture that just encourages thoughtless relationships and big spending.
Symbolizes everything that is wrong and superficial about our culture today.
Jim: OMG Valentine's Day is tomorrow!!!!!
Joey: That's nice.
Jim: I'm going to buy my girlfriend a new phone, and jewelry, and money, and gift cards, and candy, and a new car, and...
Joey: I may be single, but if I wasn't, I would appreciate my girlfriend for the whole year, not just for one day in February.
