Ban Valentine's Day
Valentine's Day should be banned because, after you've stripped away all of the nonsense about love and romance, what you have is a faux holiday where the real beneficiaries are the greeting card, floral, chocolate, and restaurant industries. Now don't get me wrong: expressions of love and affection are fine but they don't have to be mandated by a day that is driven more by commerce than anything else. If one needs to be reminded by Valentine's Day to do something special for a loved one, what's the point? Damn, you should have been doing that all year long and on the regular. Happy Valentine's Day.
