Well,  St. Valentines was no saint, and it is based on the mythological beliefs of the greek god eros, and roman ideologies of the roman god cupid shooting darts of love. Church, Jesus is love and not loving sin nor thing of the world, so do not get caught with all that and being sad, talking about nobody bought you anything for Valentines. It is time out for pagan infiltrations.
