Big bold new post on one of the websites I visit:

VALENTINE’S DAY IS COMING.

Turn my stomach, why don’tcha?

Look. I hate! “Hallmark Holidays,” those commercially-driven occasions built up for the sole purpose of selling specialized goods – and making those of us left out of the game feeling lower than dirt.

Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day… I used to tell my daughters that every day is Mother’s Day for me. With a good man who loved me, whom I loved, every day would be Valentine’s Day –

We don’t need these stupid commercial “holidays” to compensate for neglect of 364 other days during the year – or to remind the rest of us what we don’t have.
