I also have a different take on Valentine's Day! As a Health Educator, working with college students, we celebrated the week with wellness events, including the national Sexual Responsibility Week. (It used to be "safer sex" week when I was in school, but that presumes "everyone is having sex" and sexual responsibility can include abstinence!)

So, for the past ten years, I've celebrated an entire week, including Valentine's Day, handing out condoms or lollipops (student's choice!), giving lectures on STDs, and my favorite brochure to hand out? "101 Ways to Not Do It" (it's pro-abstinence brochure, but fun for college students who are in a sexual relationship...it has some fun/silly ideas!)

The best V-day was when we changed the meaning of "V"...and we went to D.C. to watch Eve Ensler's Vagina Monologues. It was a fun, fabulous day, and the entire campus celebrated "V Day" in a new way!
