Can we get it banned here too?
It's like an extortion racket run by the jewelry, flower and card businesses.
Do you need to ban everything you don't like? You could just not take part in it.
I don't really like V-day either but a ban is worse. Much like banning religion.
Another state, this one a Christian one in the former Soviet Union, has banned Valentine's Day too.
Extremists seem to think it explicitly promotes adultery. All I have to say is they have too much time on their hands. Most people I know who don't like this commercial Hallmark holiday just don't take part in it.
