Yet another reason the Swiss are not known as great lovers

They can't even get Valentine's Day right.

My Swiss co-workers are a little surprised that my wife and I gave Valentine's gifts to our children. Apparently, in Switzerland, it's a lovers-only holiday.

This country must already sell enough chocolate to think that promoting it any more would just be overkill.

I think once they realize they could make money branding the chocolate better, they'll do it. The Swiss will do anything for money. Even love.

I'm Britsih but so agree with the Swiss. Giving your kids Valentine gifts is plain weird. He's the patron saint of lovers, after all
