Valentine's Day http://kuow.org en Valentine Hearts That Are Meant To Be Broken http://kuow.org/post/valentine-hearts-are-meant-be-broken In first grade, my heart was stolen by Mark, who sat next to me and had an advanced phonics book (which I also craved). Then there were Peter, Eddie, Raja and Michael. These serial crushes continued right on up through my early 20s, at a rate of approximately three a year. Boys. I fell for their incipient mustaches, their bad attitudes and foul mouths, their poor poetry and bass guitars, their careless humor. I saw their swagger for what it was, but I loved it anyway.<p>When you're a kid, conversation hearts, waxy chocolates and powdery-smelling carnations are the currency of Valentine's Day.

The Dark Origins Of Valentine's Day http://kuow.org/post/dark-origins-valentines-day Valentine's Day is a time to celebrate romance and love and kissy-face fealty. But the origins of this festival of candy and cupids are actually dark, bloody — and a bit muddled.<p>Though no one has pinpointed the exact origin of the holiday, one good place to start is ancient Rome, where men hit on women by, well, hitting them.<p><strong>Those Wild And Crazy Romans</strong><strong> Mon, 14 Feb 2011 15:23:00 +0000 editor 8270 at http://kuow.org The Dark Origins Of Valentine's Day
