When I was in college, a couple of the guys on my floor (who were perennially single) started a counter-holiday called He-Man Woman Haters Day, during which they would sit in their rooms, watch exploitation films, and drink beer. It was about as much fun as it probably sounds like, but at least there was beer.
Still, while I'm not prepared to promote an anti-Valentine's Day agenda, I just can't get all that excited about a holiday that seems to exist mainly as a bidding war between the advertisers of Shiny Rocks and the advertisers of Dead Shrubbery. For one thing, as a celebration of Romantic Love, Valentine's Day seems to me like it ought to be a special case of Thanksgiving - and it feels like we just finished that. For another, do you really need to schedule a holiday to remind you to celebrate Romantic Love? I mean, it seems like if you're in a position to celebrate that at all, you're probably celebrating it all the time - informally, as it were.
Still, I hate to be a complete grump about this, so if you'll join me below the cut I'll share a couple of my favorite love songs. Enjoy...
And, finally, a classic:
 - "Stop the War on Valentine's Day!" Heh. There's a poster I'd like to see. And maybe some bumper stickers that say, "It's okay to say 'I love you'."
