Hey all, How are planning to celebrate Valentines in your respective organisations? Is there a plan of organising some games, dress code of giving out gifts? CB

Celebrating Valentines day is against our culture and may invoke employees to harass the girls. This may lead to either affairs or fights and then you have to handle both, if its affair others will watch the PDA and if it is fight then you are responsible for encouraging sexual harassment and if some SS, VHP comes to know your organisation will be gamaged. Kindly note valentines day is for celebration by lovers and has your organisation got equal no of couples. It is not like christmas or diwali.
Sab bolege I LOVE U to the hottest girl ... then you will have problem..
And as a HR professional such thoughts should not come into your mind. Such thoughts are not in favour of maintaining office decorum kindly do get some knowledge on how to present in office.

Ravi,
seems you are not clear with the concept of valentines.....it doesn't have to necessisarily celebrated amongst the lovers. India has come far of now and people enjoy Valentines as a festival. We as HR professionals should take advantage of each festival and celebrate in order to add a spark in everyone's busy and monotonous schedule. It would add to a "Fun at work" culture.I don't think it's a bad idea. Anyways, thanks for your input.

Hi Chanda,
We've few activities lined up for Valentine Day.
1) Every employee will decorate his/her own work station.
2) We are even open for the spouses to come over & surprise the employees working with us & we've had many spouses who have agreed to come forward & do their bit. In one of the cases, Wife of one of the senior managers has agreed to come over & decorate his work station one evening in advance in his absence to surprise him.
3) All the department heads will be distributing Chocolates to Ladies working in his/her department.
4) Dress Code would RED for the day.
5) Lot of games like dance on the paper, karaoke, antakshari, bake the cake and many others are palnned for the day.
Hope this would of some help to you Chanda.

Dear Chanda,
U can keep the dress code red for girls and white for the guys.
Try to call a NGO selling gift items made by handicapped people.
Made them available in the caffeteria during lunch timings.
Thanks and Regards,

hello guyz!
Im in a university setting... what we usually do during valentines day are:
1. students set up booths for roses & chocolates for sale, free delivery around the campus
2. other groups would prepare love songs, individual or offices could request to serenade another office or a particular employee.
3. we also request some single men employee to give roses to single women employees
4. or a raffle draw for a free valentines dinner date, for a couple employee or single employees (a male & a female)

i don't know if these are acceptable to your working environment... just sharing some ideas.
hope it helps.

Know Your Mate
"Know Your Mate" is a Valentine's Day game for the couples. It will help you know how well you understand your partner.

How to Play:
1. The host needs to prepare some questions to be asked to the couples. For eg - questions like interests and hobbies, place where they met first or the most happiest moment.
2. First, call all the males in a room. Ask the questions and note down all the answers given by each of them
3. Next, call the females inside the room and let the males leave the room.
4. Ask the same questions and note down the answers.
5. Now, call all the males inside and match the answers of both the partners.
6.The couple with the highest number of matched answers wins and are called the 'Perfect Match'.

Cupid's Tree Scavenger Hunt

Things Needed:
Tree branch
Jar
Marbles or stones
Paper
Small gifts
String

How to play:
1. Set up a Valentine's tree centerpiece on the dining room table. A small bare branch held upright in a jar of marbles or stones works well.
2. Write clues on small pieces of paper for items that the kids must find or make of paper and hang on the tree. Then tie the clues onto the branches of the tree.
3. When the kids come back with the last item, have small gifts waiting under the tree.

Tips for Clues:
To create clues, try the following, or use your own funny riddles:
1. I like to bark and chase a stick. Draw a picture of me and hang it up quick.
2. I've got five points and twinkle in the sky. Cut me out of tinfoil and put me up high.
3. Although my name rhymes with stupid, I'm as cute as can be. Cut my shape out of paper and hang me on the tree.

Valentine's Day Word Games
This is a word game where famous pairs come together.

How to play:
Divide the children into 2 teams and form two rows facing each other. The first player on one side begins by asking the first player on the other team to complete this famous couple:
"Romeo and ....." the opposing player says "Juliet"
Continue down the row of players and then the other team starts...."peanut butter and ....."
"jelly"
"Cookies and......." - milk
"Ram and......" Sita
"Cinderella and ....." - Prince Charming
"Heer and ....." - Ranjah
And so on.

Variation:
This game can also be played using hearts that had been cut into two piece puzzles. Children can be asked to match the hearts.

Love Story
How to play:
Give each player a piece of paper and a pencil.
Explain to them that they are working as a team to write a Love Story section by section.
Each player writes a portion of the story as per your instructions.
After each instruction the papers are folded and passed to the next writer.
When the instructions are completed, each player/writer will have a story in their hands.
Take turns unfolding the papers and reading the stories.

Suggested writing instructions:
Girl Character's name -->pass
Description of Girl -->pass
Boy character's name -->pass
Description of him-->pass
How the boy and girl meet-->pass
First words boy said to girl-->pass
How she replied-->pass
What happened next-->pass
What did their friends say/do? -->pass

Other options for plot turns:
What did the neighbors say ?
What happened on their first Date?
Where did they get married ? Kids ? Pets ? Adventures ?
What did the newspaper print about them ?
Use famous people and places.

Valentine Charades
How to play:
Before the party write some appropriate phrases, book titles, song titles and famous love stories (movies).
Place the slips of paper into an empty heart box.
Divide the players into teams and have them play facing each other.
Each player will draw a slip of paper from the heart box and in turn act out their song, book, title etc. for their respective team.

Clues and Hints to remember:
NO talking!
Open hands represents book
Cranking motion represents movie
Waving hand before and open mouth represents Song
Tugging on your ear represents "sounds like"
Holding up one finger means 1st word etc.
Touching your nose indicates correct answer.

Throwing the Smile
In this game, players are forbidden to smile, but trust us--giggling and laughing will abound.
Things Needed:
A place where everyone can sit in a circle
How to play:
Players sit in a circle, making sure they can see everyone else. One player starts the game by smiling widely, while all the other players are somber.
This player then uses his hand to wipe the smile off his face and throw it to another player who has to catch the smile with his hand and put it on.
This new then wipe off the smile to throw to someone else--though he will probably choose to mug wildly at everyone for a few minutes before relinquishing his happy role.
Meanwhile, all other players must sit stone-faced. One smirk and they're out.

Tips:
The youngest players are the least successful at winning this game (they simply can't stop themselves from laughing), but they also tend to enjoy it the most.

Gigglebelly
Just the name of this game cracks kids up; playing it only intensifies their joy.
How to play:
Have one player lie down on his back.
The next player lies down with his head resting on the first player's belly and the next player lies down with her head on the second player's belly.
Arrange all the players until everyone is zigzagged around the lawn or floor, each with his or her head on someone else's belly (if possible, make the line into a loop so that the last player can put her head on the first player's belly).
Then, the first player shouts, loud and clear, "Ha!"
The second player responds with a vigorous, "Ha, ha!" then the third player chimes in, "Ha, ha, ha!"
Continue until all players have shouted out their "Ha's" or (more likely) have dissolved into uncontrollable laughter, with heads bouncing on the bellies of giggling friends, uncles, cousins or grandmothers.
