This thread kind of makes me sad. I feel like I keep reading over and over again "this is how we do it in America. Americans are always right. There's only one way to do things; our way." So what if she grew up somewhere where Valentine's was an adult thing? That doesn't make it wrong; we just happen to do things differently here. She's been told over and over that the holiday is celebrated differently here than she's used. I think she's grasped it by now.
