Love it or hate it -- Valentine's Day brings out a lot of emotions. Due to this passion, it’s no surprise that Valentine’s Day resonates with many across Metro Detroit. The holiday can affect people differently, as we can see in two stories on Valentine’s Day from WDIV in 1982.

Michigan’s most haunted: The Werewolf of Grosse Pointe
Note: The Halloween special Haunted Legends of Old Detroit, hosted by Chuck Gaidica, originally aired in 1996. If you do, it might not be the neighbor's dog - it could be the werewolf of Grosse Pointe. There's a fascinating tale of a young woman named Genevieve, who lived there with her father. The pact was that he could be turned into a werewolf - and he could pursue her and keep her. One night, the werewolf tracked Genevieve - she fought him off, and turned him into stone.
