Why does society tend to demonize Valentine's Day but not Christmas?

Sure, both are fun in their own right; but at the end of the day they're still nothing but Hallmark Days.

No, Santa and Rudolph have nothing to do with Christianity, for those who want to bring that argument up.

Valentine's Day reminds you to be generous towards your partner, while Christmas is about giving to family and friends.

Each holiday is about buying cards and presents, so why do people seem to start riots every time February 14th is mentioned? They seem to have absolutely no problem with Steak and ******** day (kind of an anti-valentine's day for men)

    Christmas, for all its retail aspects and overhyping, is an actual religious holiday of importance to some. St. Valentine's Day was never a major holiday in the Catholic Church and has been bastardized to where now it's most guys' worst fear because the expectations placed on them by their partners can verge onto the insane. No one should be expected to make a reservation a year in advance and pay triple the normal price of a meal just to keep their girlfriend/wife from having a fit.
