January flew away and February is the shortest month of the year. It has only been a month since the end of last holidays’ rampant consumerism and, in a few days, it will arrive the so often mentioned day of love. Needless to say how silly can seem to celebrate St. Valentin Day, but nevertheless, the idea of having a day to celebrate love is not intrinsically bad.
We can all agree that St. Valentin is a marketing strategy and of course is not worth having a bad day just because you are single. However, if you have a partner or you are just in love, why wouldn’t you make of next Monday 14th of February a special day for you and your loved one? To me it sounds like a nice excuse, do it just for the shake of taking the time to prepare dinner together or going out to enjoy a special activity on these cold winter days when life can get a bit too monotonous.
So then, instead of complaining and roll your eyes just by the idea of this celebration, here is a small summary of different ideas to enjoy this day while not harming the planet and putting a bit aside consumerism. Besides, if you just happen to not to be in love, you could prepare something with a friend or with your family, they also love you! Moreover, if you are not feeling social at all, remember that you are also worth of your own love!
