Valentine's Trap

According to the BBC, “Malaysia has stepped up a campaign to stop Muslims celebrating Valentine’s Day – labelling it a ‘trap’ that could encourage immoral behaviour.”

On one hand, I think that it is silly to suggest that Valentine’s Day is a western celebration and has Christian connotations. I think that it is silly because it is more a Pagan celebration that got hijacked by Christians than it is an actual Christian celebration.

However, on the other hand, I do agree that V’day is a trap – a commercial one!
