My girlfriend is from Poland, and she give no consideration for Valentine's day at all, says she can't stand it because of commercialism etc etc.
Of course, she could just be really unromantic :-)
my ex boyfriend was also a polish. he's not only complaining about valentines day being commercialized but also christmas,new year, birthdays. i realized he's just used to as an excuse becuase he didnt to spend his money.
