The war on St. Valentine 聖バレンタインデーに仕掛けられる戦争
The war on St. Valentine
Ruining holidays has become the national sport of the self-righteous and the politically correct. There’s the War on Christmas, the attempt to abolish Halloween, and even Christopher Columbus is reckoned a symbol of “imperialism” on his special day. St. Valentine’s Day now joins the axis of childhood evil.
Teachers at Bradley Beach Elementary School in New Jersey have advised parents of a new rule. “If your child chooses to exchange Valentine cards in school,” they wrote, “he or she should have one for each classmate.” Choosing a favorite is no fair.
