I get the whole Valentine's Day hoopla; it's just not my thing - or my wife's. When we were dating, we celebrated our first Valentine's Day together with “Army of Darkness” on DVD and a six-pack of Dead Guy Ale. I'm for the spirit of Valentine's Day, and like many couples we do our best to carry that spirit throughout the rest of the year. So on random days in the summer, fall and winter, some flowers show up on the kitchen table. Some chocolates may find their way into the cupboard on any given weekday.

Irma Lemus MAGNOLIA PARK -- Forty-seven years to the day after they said their "I dos," Joanne and Charles Andrews spent a moment cuddling and singing along to "It Had to be You." The Burbank couple joined about 100 other Burbank seniors Monday for a Valentine's Day program at the Joslyn Adult Center where romance and volunteerism were the themes of the day. Coordinator Dee Call said the center held the event, which featured classic love songs sung by the Mellowtones Choral Group, in honor of those who give their time -- and hearts -- as part of the Burbank Retired Senior Volunteer Program.

Laura Sturza HILLSIDE DISTRICT -- When storyteller Hubert Kozak told the story of a boy who learns to make a stranger into a friend, 40 children listened closely -- mostly because many of them were busy making new friends, or making Valentine's Day cards to give to their friends. The second- through fourth-graders were part of a Burbank Central Library story and craft program that celebrated Valentine's Day by focusing on the theme of "best friends.

Sunshine, coy smiles and intense concentration covered the faces of children on McKinley Elementary School's playground Tuesday afternoon as they gripped dense pieces of pastel chalk and drew hearts, messages of love and multi-colored flowers on the pavement. They constructed a pieced-together valentine that spanned approximately 40 feet in all directions. A massive heart that local pastel artist Randall Williams drew was the central piece of the PTA-sponsored chalk valentine.

Valentine's Day is coming. And you know what that means. Lots of exciting, passionate, thrilling talk about possessives -- specifically, the use of possessives in holiday names. (If you know something I don't here, it's probably best that you don't mention it.) All across the nation, couples will come together this Valentine's Day to explore questions such as: Is there an apostrophe in Valentine's Day and where does it go? Is it the same for Saint Patrick's Day? Because that's coming up too and we still haven't figured out whether an apostrophe belongs in Presidents Day. And what about Mother's Day?

Jacqui Brown Kindergarten students in Sandy Solis' class at Edison Elementary shared their hearts on Friday with people they don't know and will likely never meet. They made cards for the soldiers serving overseas -- a project meant to keep men and women warriors in touch with a celebrated piece of Americana -- Valentine's Day. Dressed in lacy pink from head to toe, dark hair falling across her tiny shoulders, 6-year-old Clare Lebeda seemed confident that this was a very important project for their class.

Jackie Conley Middle school students kicked off the three-day weekend with a dance dedicated to love. More than 100 Luther Burbank Middle School students lined up outside the gymnasium after school let out Friday afternoon, eager to get inside for the Valentine's Day dance. "The good part about these dances is you actually get to ask a girl to go with you," said 11-year-old Stephen Flores. "But the bad part is when they reject you."

Couples married for 20- to 50-plus years say they keep the spark in their romance through communication, humor and patience. Marj and Bob Overstreet of Burbank were married Sept. 6, 1958, and are John Burroughs grads — he in 1955, she in 1957. They met on a double date. “His good sense of humor is what first attracted me to him,” Marj Overstreet said. “He seemed to know what he wanted in life.” Parents of three grown boys, the Overstreets say they have kept their marriage romantic by making private time a priority.

I love this day. Today is a day of love, sweet anticipation and fresh hopes. It is a day for the renewal of promises, the rekindling of old relationships and the creation of new ones. It is a day to try on new clothes, if you know what I mean. The scent of an approaching, amorous spring is in the air. Today men young and old get butterflies in their stomachs. They get a little silly with hope and eagerness. You know where I am going. Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for Dodger baseball.
