There’s the age-old argument that Valentine’s Day is just another gimmick created by the greeting card companies.
The record industries to amp up sales with “limited release” cuts of sugary, love songs.
The concert promoters and restaurants that trick you into date nights you never thought you’d take part in.
Hollywood and the industry for releasing films filled with lackluster scripts, horrible music and too much kissing.
But then there are the sentimentalists and traditional folk who believe in the story of Saint Valentine – Patron of Love, Young People & Happy Marriages.
The kids and teachers who make adorable cards and cookies covered in pink and red glitter and other sparkling goodness.
Who can forget their first Valentine’s card from a crush or a cute kid?
No matter what side of the fence you’re on, we aren’t one to miss a theme at CMC. So we’ve roused up our most music-loving staff members to create the CMC Lonely Hearts Playlist – which you can stream here in the sidebar of our blog.
These are picks from Corey, Alicia, Heather, Kyle, Melanie, Lauren, Ian, Maghan, Penny, Jeremy and Brittany. We think it’s pretty amazing and we’d love some suggestions if you think we missed any.
What are you plans for Valentine’s Day? Need some dining suggestions?
