Lori's Mistake

Lori said that Hallmark Cards created the day. Not true. It is one of the oldest goyish 'holidays', having existed since 496 of the Common Era. I think that pre-empted even Hallmark Cards.

Express love every day

Lori's so right. Love should be expressed regularly. I saw in "Together We Are One" (Rabbi Eliezer Medwed) that husband and wife are constantly doing kindness for each other and their home (family) and they should be acknowleged as such. It's so important - just like Lori says. We have to see the good in everything people do for us and to express our love to them constantly. Thank you Lori

V-Day is Not the Enemy (nor was it invented by Hallmark)

The holiday is not saying to "only love one day a year." It's more like an encouragement and reminder. Sometimes we need that. Also, it wasn't invented by Hallmark. That's a myth. I don't really blame you for repeating it, though, as these days it's so often stated as fact.

Commercial holiday, andit's true

I agree with you Lori with all my heart. Why wait for a day to show your love to anyone. We have to have it everyday, thus show it everyday. If G-D's love is within you, it shows in the way you live your life. We don't need a holiday for that! And I hope people realized this, so they won't feel bad if someone forget thier birthday or was not able to send them flowers and chocolates! One thing they have to realized a box od special chocolates cost 10X more on Valentine's day!

Celebrating Love

I agree with you. I celebrate love everyday with the people I love. I always want to show the people that I love that loving them is not a chore, but something I want to do all the time.
