Great holiday, seriously, thanks.
St. Valentine, the Catholic saint for which this "holiday" is named, actually refers to one of perhaps four men who were matyred in the 3rd Century...Much like the way the millions of men will feel tonight as they drop serious coin on flowers, dinner and dates (Music and Lyrics opens tonight!).
Really this lame-ass holiday was also designed to replace a pagan fertility holiday called "Lupercalia" in which people went nuts, drank a lot and had sex with anything that moved. So, when you're buying your 70 dollar roses for your wife, or sitting through some bullshit with Hugh Grant, just remember you can be having sex with your girlfriend AND her BFF tonight if it weren't for "St. Valentine's Day".
