Sweetest Day now largely involves giving small presents such as greeting cards, candy, and flowers to loved ones. While it is not as large or widely observed as Valentine’s Day, it is still celebrated in parts of the United States, despite persistent allegations of being a “Hallmark holiday.”

Retail Confectioners International describes it as “much more important for candymakers in some regions than in others (Detroit, Cleveland and Buffalo being the biggest Sweetest Day cities)”. In 2006, Hallmark marketed 151 greeting card designs for Sweetest Day.

Is this “Sweetest Day” crap just another made up holiday?

Jimithy ™ asked:

What the hell is this? Why haven’t I heard of this before? Do I really need a holiday to tell my wife I love her? She knows I love her and that she’s the most important thing in my life. I’m not celebrating this crap. I’m not going to be Hallmark’s monkey boy, I will not be a tool of the flower industry.

I hear from people that it’s just a Hallmark holiday and not a very important one…..So there’s probably no reason to why I should get my special someone anything at all then huh.

How dare they offend me with their appeasing Christians! Why won’t they think of the children who have to see that crap!?

Who wants to boycott Hallmark?

“I’m offended **BY** the Hallmark store.”
Damn, I’m 0 for 2 today:

“There **ARE** all these Jesus figurines during the holidays…”
Jeme: Notice I answered that question also. It was the inspiration for this tongue-in-cheek question.

I actually thought that by getting out of an emotionally draining marriage I would finally have some time to myself and some peace in my life. Ending the marriage was definately a good decision, I don’t ever doubt that, but, about the peace and quiet…I DID enjoy it for awhile,actually for several YEARS, but now that I am spending Holidays and long weekends pretty much alone, the silence and peacefullness is almost deafening!!! And, I **** to say it, and I hope it’s not only me or I am going to become very concerned about myself, well, you see, the thing is…..I absolutely **** any holiday, and especially these 3 day weekends when I’m supposed to be celebrating some Hallmark kind of day, and it just “ain’t” happening. I suppose the song is not quite right (not the afore/above mentioned song) but the one about rocks and ilands and feeling no pain…well what I really mean is, I am not a rock, nor an island, and I am definately feeling pain. Why do holidays **** so much? 4 U 2 ? :{

Who gives a crap about Valentine’s Day?

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009
you dont know me asked:

Seriously. Its a hallmark holiday designed to rip you off!! And it makes all the poor single kids feel bad. VD should just go far far away. So, please inform me why anyone should give two craps about this made up holiday??

PS. No, not single. In a loving long term relationship, we just love each other every day and not just on one day.

Are there any good holiday movies out there that won’t make me hurl my holiday eggnog?

Alec the Dalek asked:

I’ve a twisted sense of humor, an appreciation for irony, and a fairly sentimental soul. But whenever my missus turns on the tube, it’s always these god-awful, super-sacharrine, syrupy made-for-TV flicks either on The Hallmark Channel or similar tripe. The kind where you can predict the ending within the first 10 minutes of the movie, complete with the stereotypical plot devices such as the terminally ill wife or child, the disgruntled person who gave up on Santa/Jesus/power-of-love/etc, and the angelic intervention that will save Christmas in the nick of time.

I mean, if you can stomach that stuff, you’re a tougher hombre than me. But for the more jaded and gritty types, any thing you’d recommend?

Valentines day a fake holiday?

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009
Hey asked:

I dont believe that valentines day is a really holiday. I mean I think its a time for hallmark and jewelry stores to make lots of money off people celebrating it. I guess I don’t celebrate it and never will, I just find it fake and Im single and plan to stay that way. I guess Im just not for that mushy bull crap, Im a hard ***** for life. Alright so do you believe in valentines day and why and if not why??????

How important are V-day gifts?

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009
Meg asked:

I’m not a big fan of Valentines day and I don’t really like to make a big deal of it (btw does anyone else feel this way – its such a cheesy hallmark holiday…) Any way, the problem is, my boyfriend wants to celebrate, and I know he’s probably going to do something really nice for me, like a nice dinner and a gift – even though I’ve told him I don’t need all that. I would personally much rather just spend time with him and return the favor in other ways..rather than buying him something. So I guess my question is, how important is it that I go out and buy him a gift?

Just Need a Couple Ideas-It’s Much Appreciated?

TriLenW asked:

I’m going to have a houseparty at my place for Valentine’s Day (I’m in college). Since I don’t have a girlfriend, and I think Valentine’s Day is a hallmark holiday, I thought it would be a funny statement to dress in drag.

I just need some ideas–does anyone know what a good costume would be? I’m about 5″9′ and pretty skinny, so I think there’s a lot I can choose from. Thanks!
RE: Doesn’t matter–I’ll shave my legs, etc. I don’t get embarrassed.
