    tell me where you get this information.
    somehow i believe there are many
    "urban legends" concerning this "holiday"...
    most of our holidays stem from pagan
    celebrations-- and i've read that this
    valentine's day really stemmed from the
    Greek "holiday" of Lupercalia celebrated
    on Feb 15th...

    *just sittin thinkin*
