After V-Day, is the thrill gone?

Last Thursday was Valentine’s Day.   For those of you who note 2/14 on the calendar, I hope you shared the love with your sweetie. I’ve written before about what lessons from love we can bring to work. Last week brought perspectives on celebrating V-Day in the workplace – pros and cons (below).  I’m also reminded as I write this on Presidents Day that we’re entering the longest stretch of the year for employees who enjoy paid holidays.  We won’t get a three-day weekend again until Memorial Day.  With all the snow and cold here in New England, I don’t know if I can wait that long!
