Why Valentine's Day Isn't Just for Couples
Many people look at Valentine’s Day a holiday when it’s time to go someplace with their sweethearts. Valentine’s Day can be about love, but it doesn’t always mean going to a restaurant or buying a box of chocolates. If you’re a person who’s single and not dating, that’s no problem.
People can look at Valentine’s Day a time when they can express admiration to whomever they look up to. It can be their parents, teachers, or even bosses. And Valentine’s Day does mean crafts. Children like Valentine’s Day because they are able to make colorful hearts make out of construction paper; you can do that, too. So you can see this February holiday is enjoyable by many people, even if they’re not married or dating.
What do you like most about Valentine's Day?
Valentine's Day is celebrated by children
Children celebrating Valentine’s Day at school prove that the holiday is really for anyone. They celebrate by making crafts in their classroom. There will likely be lots of pink, red and white construction paper used to make beautiful, frilly cards for people they admire, such as their parents or teachers. The students will have fun making paper hearts to hang on windows, so visitors will admire how hard-working the youngsters are.
So what do the children look forward to the most on Valentine’s Day? They look forward to a classroom party filled with pink and red decorations, candy hearts, cookies and punch. And they’re celebrating it as a class, not as a couple in love.
Valentine's Day dinners can be made for parents
Making meals for parents is something anyone can do on Valentine’s Day. It can be done right at home, and candles may be used to add a cozy glow at the dinner table. Taking your parents out to eat is also fine; you’ll be able to show how much you love them. Of course, you do have to pay the bill.
Singles observe Valentine's Day, too
Singles can still celebrate Valentine’s Day at their leisure time, like shopping for special deals. Many stores have sales on Valentine’s Day, and they don’t always mean jewelry or an expensive fragrance. Clothes are often on sale, making Valentine’s Day a good opportunity to catch up on bargains. Another option for singles is treating themselves desserts commonly eaten at Valentine’s Day. Chocolates, yes, but there are more than just chocolate candies to choose from: Lava cakes, crème brûlée, ice-cream cupcakes to name a few. Finally, there’s nothing like a nice warm bubble bath to end the day, with soft music playing in the background.
Valentine’s Day can be celebrated by anyone who enjoys making things, cooking, shopping, or has a sweet tooth. It’s a fun holiday to celebrate. Even if you don’t consider yourself a “romantic” person, at least you can do is say “I love you” to your own parents.
