St Valentine´s Day: It´s all about love!

Valentine´s Day: Do you love it, or do you loathe it?

Personally speaking, I am mad about it!  Why not?

OK, so we shouldn´t need a specific day to tell people that we care about them.  However, what´s the harm? You don´t have to buy into the commercial aspect of the day.  Take my advice, and buy into the sentiment of the day: All you need is love and affection.
