ok, so i just had a call with my father and sister, and he lambasted both my sister and i for not calling our mother or sending her anything on valentines day.
my sister and i simply do not think much of the holiday, and thus didnt think to call out mother specially for feb 14...so that made me wonder who amongst all of you call or send something to your mother on valentines day.
i mean she gets mothers day, isn't that enough? (I'M KIDDING--though surely going to hell for comments like this)

In Finland, its called 'Friendship Day' (or words to that effect) and in Sweden it's called 'All Hearts Day' (or words to that effect). But in Britain it is effectively a romantic thing - meant for couples and people with whom you would like to be - and not for relatives (well, I hear it's a big thing in Scotland; perhaps ask GKirk about it). So I would not give my mum one.
