Auto- it is a useful handy guide.
Saves people asking the same old dumb questions, and going out when you're gagging for a drink only to find it's some random godbothering day.

I had a few friends who worked in the restaurant industry for a bit and they all said Valentine's day is the worst day to eat at a restaurant. Always too crowded, always rushed service and the restaurant staff slack on the cooking knowing people aren't there for the food. If you must go out wait a week later.

It's ghastly. Tables full of unhappy couples desperately trying to find something to talk about and dreading going home for the obligatory romantic coupling. It's faux-romantic version of NYE, full of people who don't usually go out, desperately pretending they are having fun.

we did that before we got married, usually made it the closest weekend. But since it is also our wedding anniversary, I don't get a choice in the matter anymore!
