Valentine’s Day, originally started in honor of Saint Valentine, is now mostly associated with the display of love, whether it be between husband, wife, or partner, or between boyfriends and girlfriends, a person to his/her emotionally dependent crutch.

Like most of our cultural rituals, Valentine’s Day has become a cash crop for many companies ( Hallmark, Lingerie stores, Chocolates companies, Jewelry shops pedaling blood diamonds, flower shops exploiting migrant workers … damn this is getting dark) to make large amounts of money by selling overpriced items.
