Valentines day
« on: February 14, 2018, 04:08:15 PM »
Maybe i've been living in a cave, but I drove down a main street here to see dozens of corner vendors with uhaul trucks selling flowers, huge teddy bear baskets looking like shalach manos etc.. its like israel before sukos with the whole world selling shtik.

What is the valentines day craze ? im pretty integrated in society but goodness this is nuts, every supermarket is flooded

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

ALL that savings is burned up in a frum wedding. The $20 teddy bear is a steal.
