Couples in our community celebrate Valentine's Day in as many ways as designers make pajamas. Some use glamour, some schmaltz to create romantic memories. Ellicott City resident Bev Wilhide recalls working in the flower shop she and her husband Lee ran on Cooks Lane in Ellicott City more than 10 years ago. It was the day after Valentine's Day -- florists are busy on the day itself. A limousine pulled up in front of the shop. "A guy came into the shop and explained [the limousine] was for me," Bev said.

Sure, not everyone wants to celebrate Valentine's Day. It's not so hard to sit it out. But imagine if you and your sweetheart worked together in the Valentine's Day industry, catering to romance but, come dinnertime on Feb. 14, never able to experience it yourselves. That's the situation facing couples who work together in restaurants. Picture them: One is firing up a filet mignons, the other is clambering over boxes of sparkling wine in the walk-in. All the while, customers are glowing dreamily in the candlelight, clasping hands under the table and feeding each other succulent bites of lobster Thermidor.

A rose is a rose, but a good chocolate? Now, that's a work of art. With Valentine's Day, the chocoholic's favorite holiday, just around the corner, inquiring minds at The Sun wanted to know: Are all chocolates made equal? Not only is the average Valentine's gift-giver stuck with the usual decisions (milk or dark? nougats or creams? heart-shaped or rectangular box?), but selecting the right brand for that special someone can also be a daunting task. To determine who is Baltimore's top chocolatier, we assembled a taste-testing panel.

Valentine's Day is upon us. In just about a week, your significant other --husband, boyfriend, online date -- will present you with that perfect gift that says all the heartfelt things you never knew he felt about you. Brrrrriiiiiing! That's your alarm clock, waking you up from that pipe dream! More than likely, what will happen is you'll get stuck making the dinner reservations, he'll show up late with wilting flowers he picked up at the grocery store, and you'll have to rush through dessert so your 16-year-old babysitter can make it to her hot date on time.

Valentine's Day used to be a wonderful time in the heady days before romance entered into its sordid relationship with Big Business.Back then a man could dash into a drug store after work and pick up a sappy Hallmark card and cheap box of candy, and be relatively certain that the woman in his life would just about turn cartwheels at this incredible thoughtfulness.Then, I don't know . . . something happened.Suddenly, it wasn't enough to burst into a Rite-Aid 10 minutes before closing time and bark at the startled Whitesnake freak with the nose ring behind the register: "The little, y'know, chocolates in the, uh, sampler thing . . . YOU GOT ANYMORE OF THEM?

SOME PEOPLE, I am told, book tables months in advance for romantic Valentine's Day dinners in dark restaurants.Some home cooks, I have read, plan elaborate Valentine's Day seduction dinners that begin with raw oysters and end, more or less, with souffles.Just the other day I learned that the hot item this Valentine's Day is chocolate body paint. You call up an 800 number, and order an 8-ounce jar of sweet milk chocolate and a brush.Such Valentine's Day doings are fascinating, but foreign to me. I feel pleased with myself if I remember before sundown Feb. 14th that the day is Valentine's Day.I find Valentine's Day a slippery, hard-to-keep-track of holiday.

Gentlemen, we'll start this column by stating our major premise: Valentine's Day is important. Not to you, maybe. But to your spouse, girlfriend, significant other or some person who's not in one of those categories yet but could be someday if you're smart and lucky enough, Valentine's Day is a National Holiday, big time. To half the human species, it's the day that the other half has to prove that it's sensitive, caring and affectionate enough to be considered worthy of the first half's notice during the other 364 days of the year.

In the mood for love If you're planning to celebrate Valentine's Day with your loved one at home, here are suggestions from Nextdaygourmet.com for making a romantic meal: Set the table by a fireplace or a window with a view. Use candles and fresh edible flowers to decorate the table. If you really want to splurge, buy a mold to create a tabletop ice sculpture for $56. Set the chairs side by side to give you the chance to get close with your valentine. Keep the food light; stick to tender, lean meats and avoid heavy pastas.
