Yesterday I reposted an article I wrote three years ago that slammed Valentine’s Day for being a corporate “Hallmark Holiday”.
I guess I was onto something. Today I founds out there are many who now call February 14th “Singles Awareness Day”.
Here is an excerpt from Wikipedia:
Singles Awareness Day (SAD) is a humorous holiday celebrated on February 14 (although some prefer the 13th or the 15th to get away from the commercialism associated with the 14th). It serves as an alternative to Valentine’s Day for people who are single: that is, who are not involved in a romantic relationship. Some observers of SAD do so out of spite for Valentine’s Day, as a Hallmark holiday, or for other reasons.
On Singles Awareness Day, single people gather to celebrate or to commiserate in their single status. Some want to remind romantic couples that they don’t need to be in a relationship to celebrate life. A common greeting on this day by its adherents is “Happy SAD!” The day is often used by less-friendly couples as a day to simply remind the singles they know about their current, uninvolved status.
I think people should be content being single and they shouldn’t be depressed on Valentine’s Day.
That being said, if you are single because you have problems interacting with the opposite sex or have social issues you should address them rather than celebrate your problem.
