    This is the main reason I do not celebrate Valentines Day in the traditional sense. It’s my one small way of trying not to contribute to capitalist greed. Why line the pockets of corporate CEO’s for a bouquet of flowers or box of chocolates when the money can be so much better spent. Tbh I’m not really into many holidays because they’ve become so commercialized. It’s really all about the $$, but slap a nice label on it and consumers buy into it. Literally.

    We don't need a wall to solve a non-problem that Donnie boy made up in the first place.

    Let trump give up valentine's day, it's his idea to put the wall up, let him donate his casinos, his so called personal airplanes, golf. Why should they expect Americans to give up thier little Traditions for something he wants, I'm not into Valentine's Day but I'm not going to give up something I want for something he wants

    AyeshaSiddiqua consumerism in a capitalistic model turning *human love* into a commodity and depriving it of it tremendous ability to do good.
