From surprise gifts exchanged by teenage sweethearts to a special dinner after a half-century of marriage, local couples said the form of their Valentine’s Day traditions has changed over the years, but, for many, the day’s importance has not waned. “We still mark the day, and even after 22 years (of marriage), it’s a good day to celebrate,” said Chris Hahne of Williamsport. She and her husband, Gary, plan to go out to eat with friends today. When they were newlyweds, Valentine’s Day was more about surprises, Chris Hahne said.

Should it be an extra-special day or should you be treated special every day? Two Pulse correspondents took their sides. A special holiday Should Valentine’s Day be a day that your significant other treats you especially well, or should you normally be treated special every day? Indeed, Valentine’s Day is when your “other half” treats you out to a nice day or perhaps a special evening, but should that behavior be encouraged for every day of the year?

CLEAR SPRING - Penny Abe, mother of two Clear Spring Elementary students, wanted her children's Valentine's Day parties to be about more than candy and cards. Working with her children's teachers, they hatched the idea to incorporate a community service into the festivities by having the children create Valentine's Day cards for the patients of Hospice of Washington County. When the parties were over, there were more than enough cards for all the patients and then some. Jodi Ramsey and other Hospice staff delivered the Valentines not only to Hospice patients but to many residents of assisted living and nursing facilities in the community as well.

HAGERSTOWN - At 13 years old, Kaleb Singleton already feels a little jaded by Valentine's Day. "I've got some bad memories from elementary school," the Hagerstown eighth-grader said. Besides, he added, it's overly commercial. "To me, it seems to be just a time when the people who work at Hallmark get raises. " Kaleb was one of a handful of teens who gathered Wednesday at the Washington County Free Library's Teen Loft for an offbeat Un-Valentine's Day party that offered temporary respite from the season's barrage of red and pink.

Everyone knows Valentine's Day. The day when couples do something extra special for each other, such as go out to eat, take a romantic walk on the beach, the list goes on. But some people don't have that opportunity. These are the people who are single and don't have someone to share this special time with. So they sit there all alone or they just do nothing for the day and feel sad as they watch other couples go by. In our society, being in love is a huge thing, especially on Valentine's Day. But not everyone is so perfect on Valentine's Day. I could say that I myself last year on Valentine's Day I got into a huge fight with my boyfriend and it just ruined the whole day for both of us. So here are some tips to avoid all the fuss and anger that is Valentine's Day. The first thing that comes to mind is "Whatever will I get the one I love for V-day to show my appreciation?"

It's official; buying the traditional box of chocolates, dozen roses, and having a romantic evening is now a Valentine's Day joke. More and more individuals are caught up in the commercialized part of Valentine's Day of buying the most expensive gifts, which completely defeats the purpose. While women try to uncover what their man has planned for them on Valentine's Day, the poor men have to dream up an extremely romantic way of expressing their love. Valentine's Day has become so commercialized that people everywhere have forgotten the true meaning of the holiday celebration.

BOONSBORO-It was an opportunity Chris Doyle couldn't pass up. When The Flower Cart in Boonsboro closed about a year ago, the community was left without a florist. Already running Mountainside Gardens just east of town for the past 10 years, Doyle figured it was time to open his own flower shop on site. Concerned because he said he knows nothing about flower arranging, Doyle began exploring the possibility. The key was hiring Carol Wilt as floral designer. "We opened on Jan. 29, just in time for Valentine's Day," Doyle said.
