I will, however, tell you this:
Regardless of the true history of the start of Valentine's day and minus the commercialism of the holiday, it is still a great reason to show someone that you care.
I wish every day could be a Valentine type of day. Not with all of the chocolate, overstuffed animals, huge cards, and cheesy greetings. Instead, I wish that every month there was a day that every one around the world would tell someone how much they love them. I wish everyone would share a hug, a smile, and a laugh with a complete stranger. I wish everyone would take a moment to pray for someone, speak life into their situation, and give another person a high five for no reason.
How many times have you sent a Valentine's Day card and did not mean a word in it? What if you skipped the card and just said "Hi, you're pretty cool." How many lives would be impacted? I bet you it would me more than the national rate of suicides each year.
I urge you to take a day, a week, a month, a moment to just say something nice about someone else, and mean it. Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on merchandise (that will probably die or get lost), spend your time encouraging someone and showing them you care through simple acts of kindness. It is possible to change the world one Valentine's Day at a time.
