Will you be My (Cynical) Valentine?

Valentines Day. Wikipedia tells me that; Saint Valentine's Day (commonly shortened to Valentine's Day) is an annual holiday held on February 14 celebrating love and affection between intimate companions.
Thank you almighty Wiki.
Yes, we celebrate love, our friends, our loved ones. Great, awesome. Let's face it people. Valentines Day is a commercial Holiday invented by Hallmark and similar corporations to sell pink&red junk to the guillable masses. Which equals earning some hard cash.
Excuse me for being a cynic here, I normally am a romantic kind of person. But Valentines...well sometimes it goes out of hand. Seriously. Everywhere you go you see hearts, you hear Absolute Love Songs booming out from every single speaker. It is oh so annoying.
It's geat to honour your loved ones, but shouldn't we do that every day? And not just on February 14th?

So yeah, I wish everyone I know a Happy Valentines Day. But don't expect to get loads of chocolate, gift cards or something equally filled with mush from me. If anything you might get a box of "Bittersweets", I found these hilarious. So on that note. I bid you farewell.
