Valentine’s day started as a Christian holiday to honor several saints with the name Valentine; it later morphed into a holiday celebrating romantic love due to the poems of Chaucer in the 14th century. I see it as a day to celebrate family and friends, not just to acknowledge romantic partners. I don’t really have strong feelings about it in particular--romance in general gets overblown a lot of the time, so the hype around Valentine’s day is always irritating, but really, there’s nothing wrong with celebrating love. It is an excuse to eat candy, though, which is always a plus.
