Which is the most pointless "holiday"??

Hot on the heels of the "I have a confession" thread in Valentine's Day, which holiday do you think is the most pointless??

I've a vague recollection of something like this before, but for the benefit of our newest members, I'll throw it open again!!!!

To me it's Valentines Day....why invent a holiday to beat a young girls ego down???? ( or anyone for that matter) In the workplace or school, roses are delivered, and if you are single then there are no roses for you!! Even in elementary school this happens!!! I have sent flowers to kids before just to make sure they could "fit in". I'll shut up now.

I have to agree with Valentine's Day. Rip off city.

If they would add some kind of drinking festival to it, it would be worthwhile

I've never heard of the Sweetest Day, either.

Here's Wiki's article:

I like CharlestonNole's idea of adding a drinking festival to Valentine's Day!

I'll say it again, I despise Valentines Day. How its even called a holiday, I will never know.

The only good thing about Valentines Day, my late grandmother (my dads mom) was born on Valentines Day in 1900.

Valentine´s Day....it´s so commercial...I just don´t like it...and I ain´t the lovey dovey person anyway....I still take the presents ....and I give too...cos I like to see a happy face...but last year my fiance and I did not give anything to each other....cos of the money
