Valentine’s Day is a day to spread love and compassion toward the people around you. Many couples use this day as an opportunity to buy each other gifts and show how much they mean to each other. However, for all the people who are single on Valentine’s Day, it can feel like a meaningless holiday.

“It’s a day for those in relationships to make themselves feel better by getting their partners gifts. They are good people, but it’s just another day with a fancy name,” Freshman Kayla Borczynski commented.

“It’s nice for couples, but kind of annoying when you’re single because it can be all in your face,” said Kailani Vera, another freshman.

Even if you aren’t in a relationship on Valentine’s Day, you can still enjoy the holiday. Here are some interesting activities you can try alone or with family and friends.

Have a movie marathon

Whether you’re alone or hanging out with family and friends, watching a movie is always fun. You can enjoy the day by renting a few of your favorite movies and spending the day with the actors you love.

Spend time with family

Valentine’s Day is about many different forms of love, not just the romantic kind. Spend the day with your family and show them how much you care for and appreciate them. You could go out to dinner, play games, or do whatever you like, but spending time together is always fun.

Bake Valentine’s treats

Who doesn’t like a sweet treat every once in a while? Bake some holiday cookies or other delicious desserts and share them with your friends. To make things even more enjoyable, invite your friends over and decorate them together.

Host a Valentine’s Day party

Parties are always a great way to join people together. Throw a party at your house and invite all your friends and family. If you’re really in the holiday spirit, have everyone bring a holiday dish that matches the theme of Valentine’s Day, such as red and pink decorated cupcakes.

Make Valentines for friends

Everyone loves getting valentines from the people they love, and there’s no better way to brighten your day than by knowing you made someone else happy. Show your friends how much you care about them by activating your creative side and making homemade valentines.
