Over There (in the UK)

It's easy to forget in these days of chocolate and cinnamon that Valentine's Day is actually named for some old dead Catholic guy. For the curious, the History Channel is all too happy to teach you more about the history behind February 14.

Then again, if you're not in an edifying sort of mood, or if you aren't the slightest bit Catholic, or, if like me, all traces of your Catholicism were wiped out when your mother attended Catholic school, you could also divert yourself with a round of hearts. Of course, a good Christian lad like Saint Valentine wouldn't approve.
