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

Valentines Day is not a holiday that I particularly like (husband does tho lol).

The other that I don't enjoy is Halloween - but I know that it's because of how the kids behave that live around here that makes it so un-enjoyable for me (they are incredibly badly behaved with zero respect to cut a looooong story short lol).

I'm sure that when I move, that I will start to enjoy Halloween How daft does that sound??

Here's Wiki's article:
