Despite Valentines Day (and its patron St Valentine) being an entirely modern, entirely human invention, come February it’s plastered everywhere. Busy (or not so busy) husbands tear around trying to pick up the ingredients for a gourmet dinner and feverishly searching Smiths for a Jamie Oliver cookbook, all in the vain hope that they’ll convince the wife that they remembered this year.
Cute young couples plan epic, three-day adventures of love that turn out to be bowling and a trip to Nandos. New-found love sparks and sometimes sets a flame as office romances and sexual tensions come to their fated conclusions. Overall it’s a crazy tradition, but loved by some as much as Christmas and Easter.
