Valentine’s Day Disappearing in Honolulu?

Today in history — Valentine’s day 1902 — The Hawaiian Star reported people in Honolulu no longer celebrated Valentine’s day:
“The … established customs of St. Valentine’s day with its exchange of tributes … have apparently passed into decadence … and the mail carriers of Honolulu will not dread St. Valentine’s Day with a haunting preminiscence of a heavy load of loving missives. Even the storekeepers have practically given it up.”
