Steven Santacroce As any flower merchant or See's Candy employee knows, Monday is Valentine's Day. Some of you might protest that this is a commercialized excuse trumped up by greeting card companies to push merchandise. While this concept might be correct, it won't get you a date. Valentine's Day is a time to let one's true romantic nature shine, and as the saying goes, the way to a man's (or woman's) heart is through his or her stomach -- never mind if a few arteries get clogged along the way. Food is often associated with love, indeed items such as oysters and chocolate have long been considered aphrodisiacs.

Danette Goulet As the children stood in two curving rows facing the keyboard, their high-pitched voices rang out almost in unison. "I've been working on the railroad, all the live long day. I've been working on the railroad, just to pass the time away. Can't you hear the whistle blowing ..." Most of the first-graders at Park Private Day School belted out the old classic. A couple were even dancing around. Those simple songs we all loved as children are still as fun as ever.

Roses are red, violets are blue, you know what Thursday is, so get on with it. It's free verse, OK? Two years ago, which should have been the year 2000 unless my math fails me, I offered local male inhabitants a "Survival Guide for Valentine's Day." I have received a tidal wave of requests, assuming two is a tidal wave, to reprise the afore-mentioned guide. Then, as now, it is important to put this business of Valentine's Day in perspective. If you are a male who is involved with a female, your life does not depend on how well you perform on Feb. 14. Only your happiness does.

Roses are red, violets are blue, Wednesday is Valentine's Day, like you didn't know that. It's free verse, OK? Get over it. Valentine's Day is a big deal and it's getting bigger every year. It's fun. I'm fine with it. But it is unfair if you are of the male persuasion. Women definitely get the longer straw when it comes to Valentine's Day. For male persons, it's nerve-racking. Every man knows that Valentine's Day is fraught with risk, but the gift-giving part is especially dangerous I am here to help, my brothers.

How can we make Valentine's Day more meaningful than just another Hallmark holiday? While it's always fun to exchange cards and share the typical chocolate, gift or romantic dinner, we believe the day can be used more consciously than that. We propose using Valentine's Day as an opportunity to get real through assessing the temperature of your love relationship. You can do this assessment any time around the actual celebration of the day, so that it doesn't interfere with your traditional celebration.
