Valentine's Day is a made-up holiday by the candy & greeting card companies, etc.

Virtually EVERY sitcom has this character if an episode is made about Valentine's Day. They'll go on a rant that the holiday was just a made-up one by the greeting card and candy companies solely as an excuse to sell cards and candy (and so on and so forth). How this affects the plot varies, depending on the writer.

Do We Have This One?? If not, Rolling Updates as they arrive.

Examples:
  • Mike Heck from The Middle went on a rant in this vein.
  • Related: In The Simpsons episode "Trash of the Titans", Costington's department store creates "Love Day," a day similar to V-Day but in the summer, in order to sell more crap.
    Marge: Happy Love Day, everyone!
    Lisa: C'mon, mom. The stores just invented this this holiday to make money.
    Homer: Lisa, don't you ruin another Love Day.
  • A lot more characters from sitcoms as well, though I can't think of any specific ones right now.
