Saint Valentine's Day +1

We are today at just few hours of the most important day of the year for lovers, husbands, wives, friends and even enemies :). February 14 or better known for 100% of the world population as Saint Valentine´s Day is a very very special day of the year where family and friends congrats each others and gather together to show some love, mainly by giving some kind of present in a kind of gift exchange where you give and expect to receive something in exchange...kisses apart :)

February 14 is a joy day, a day wich many people remember and try not to forget because, let´s be fair, it is better to forget your wife´s birthday than Saint Valentine´s Day. Although forgetting her birthday will put you in a hurry, to forget February 14 will bring you bad luck for the rest of the year: no day since this date on will be good enough for you to beg for her forgiveness... ;)

Saint Valentine´s Day has its own story of sorrow and remembrance, of happiness and joy, from Royalty to peasants and from couples to friends, everybody knows, to a greater or lesser extent, the story behind this special day....but what almost every people does not know, or know but is not widely publicized, is Saint Valentine´s Days has its opposite day of the year and it turns out to be just Saint Valentin´s Day +1: February 15, also known as “Singles Awareness Day”.

A day to remember...but forgotten

Singles Awareness Day(aka SAD, as weird as it may sound ) is a holiday celebrated by single people, that is, not involved in a romantic relationship. Saint Valentine´s Day used to be celebrated by married or engaged people in past days but over time, friends and family took this day as their own and expect on February 14 with some kind of anxiety to show some love and how important are friendship and family links too in addition to marital ties or relationships.

According to National Day Calendar “Singles Awareness Day” has been around since 1999. In a blog post dated February 11, 2005, Mississippi State University student, Dustin Barnes lays claim to the creation of the day. According to his article, Barnes and his high school friends invented it “back in the day.”

Another celebration has been taking place in the United Kingdom for some time. Some sources on the Internet show references to the celebration in the UK while others make no reference at all. And no matter whether the observance was created in the US or crossed the pond and grew from there SAD day is here to stay!

February 15 is a day dedicated to self love mainly. It’s a humorous holiday to celebrate being single, to share with single friends, to send each other presents or even order yourself some flowers :). On this day many people wear green, as it is the complementary opposite of red. Another popular option is an absence of color (black), to symbolize an absence of celebration. One increasingly popular activity is to travel to Brazil and witness the Brazilian Carnival (Brazil doesn’t celebrate Valentine’s Day on February 14, but in June 12 :o )

Originally, most singles referred to February 14 as Single's Awareness Day until it just became too depressing. That´s why choosing the next day allowed single people a chance to turn this into a celebration rather than a festival of self-pity or whatever they were doing before.

According to some reports marriage is declining while singles are rising and if you take a look at some statistics here and here, you´ll be aware that the world(and specially US) has a trend to ditch marriage and keep “marital relationships” out of law: singles as for the law...

Some people see benefits into being single and is my personal opinion that there is no reason to be miserable that you are independent and unattached; on the contrary, there are many more people in relationships than you might think, who rather wish they were in single people´s shoes, with nobody to answer to but themselves. By experience i can say both sides of the coin have benefits no matter the way you take a look at it, some people think is bad to be alone while others feel free having no ties to nobody and enjoy singleness the most.

At the end of the day, no matter if it is San Valentine´s Day or Singles Awareness Day the most important part of our lives is to live every day like it's the last day of our lives, love and to be loved, forgive and understand, take care of ourselves and each others and, finally, enjoy the little and common things of our daily lives as unique gifts that will never come back again...there are your 14, 15, 16, 17....February days +1 **:)**

❤ Happy San Valentine´s Day ❤

❤ Happy Singles Awareness Day! ❤
