I don't know how else to explain it.

    I feel like I'm going around in circles, sorry I didn't expect my post to be quoted as it was as was just answering the thread....
    You're not, you're just further explaining something to a very tired Mumma. It all makes sense ow due to the help of a few other posts. Everyone as you were!

    Not really. Our eldest has somehow cottoned on to it this year, so DH and the girls made up 2 vases of flowers from the garden this morning. Better than spending money on some.

    I think that is more than we have done in years. We feel like it's forced and fake.

    We sort of do but it's nothing major, DH took DS to the shops just now and DS picked a red rose to buy me and came bounding in saying happy Valentine's Day mummy which was very cute and he said he is taking me to our favourite restaurant for dinner but daddy's paying!

    Nope. DH doesn't "believe" in it. Like it's a figment of everyone's imagination or something. I'd like to but don't bother given his lack of interest.

    To be fair I usually get flowers or chocolates throughout the year for no reason.

    Yeah, it's comnercialised as all hell but so is Mother's Day, Father's Day, Xmas, Easter etc and we celebrate all those.

    As a side note, I got my first ever V day card when I was 17 from an anonymous person. To this day, almost 20 years later, I still don't know who it was from.

    just had lunch at one of our fave Japanese places in our old hood. I want a cupcake but none of the bakeries around had anything up to scratch.

    yep agree with this.

    I'm also Catholic albeit not practicing. but 12 years of Catholic education and parents who still go to church, I'm fairly au fait on what's what.

    I've never heard of not being able to celebrate Valentine's Day.

    any god that says you can't enjoy the feast day of another Saint seems a fairly insecure and fearful god if you ask me.

    there's plenty of feast days in the Roman Catholic calendar. I've never ever heard of anything that bans such celebrations.

    sounds to me like this is another brand of hardline Christian fundamentalism whereby you're only allowed to have eyes for God. it's just another means of brainwashing and thought control to maintain order amongst the masses.

    Actually its adhering to what the bible says rather than the traditions of the church. Its a matter of honour and respect where it is due ( if u believe in God of course)

    serious question, do different religions have different bibles?

    I'm not sure what version of Christianity you follow (would you feel comfortable disclosing this?). but does say, Methodist or Presbyterian have a different bible to the Roman Catholic bible?
