Valentine's Day: It's Not Just for Couples

Valentine's Day Little Boy Snow Winter Heart

Stores have already been lined for weeks with gigantic teddy bears and red heart-shaped boxes of chocolate. Many people dread Valentine's Day, viewing it as a gimmick created by greeting card companies to make money.

While the act of celebrating Valentine's Day with a significant other has become cliche for many, Valentine's Day does not have to be about being part of a couple. If you are single, or simply choose not to buy into the fad of the holiday, here are 3 alternative ways to spend your Valentine's Day

Volunteer: Perhaps you don't have a special someone in your life, so Valentine's Day has become a reminder of being alone. Rather than moping around at home, give back to your community and make someone else's day brighter. Contact your local soup kitchen, and see if they need volunteers to help serve dinner that night. Animal shelters are always looking for people to come in and walk dogs. No matter what you do, choose to make the holiday about showing love to those in need. 

Get the Gang Together: Maybe you have lots of single friends who usually spend Valentine's Day alone. Get the whole gang together and go out to dinner and movie on Valentine's Day. This way the holiday is more about spending time with friends, rather than about having dates. If you would rather avoid the crowds of happy couples altogether, host a game night at your house with food and drinks. Either way, it will be fun to have everyone together for the night.  

Have a Special Date Night: Just because you are single, doesn't mean you can't plan a special date for Valentine's Day. Call up your mom, dad, or other relative and ask them if they would like to spend a night out on the town with you. This is a great way to honor that special person, and show them how much you love them.

Make Valentine's Day a special holiday this year, whether you're in a relationship or not. For more alternative ways to celebrate Valentine's Day, contact us today!
