    I'm pretty sure Valentines Day has been a TF2 holiday for several years but Valentines Day mode doesn't actually do anything.

    I mean, it's totally intended that jarateed players can't get shot in the head anymore right?

    This entity uses the logic_auto icon, so I'm assuming it only fires these outputs when the map is loaded for the first time.
    Does it also fire while the map is running? Say, you're playing on a fun map and suddenly there's a Full Moon, then I'd like the entity to fire this output while the map is running.

    Can anyone confirm or disprove this?

    I'd imagine that they only change holiday when changing map.
