* Celebrate/commiserate with your other single friends on this S.A.D.
* Singles Awareness Day is February 15th

If you’re single, Valentine’s Day is the worst. Could there be a more in-your-face way to remind you that you don’t have a special someone? No one will be buying you a special dinner or surprise gift on February 14th.

But don’t fret, there’s a day for you, too! Singles Awareness Day, or S.A.D. for short, is February 15th. This up-and-coming holiday celebrates all love, especially that which you have for yourself. It’s the ideal time to show all the couples around you that being single isn’t all that bad. Plus, it’s a great excuse to get together and celebrate with friends.

Whether you prefer to celebrate or commiserate, make this S.A.D. one of the best ever by gifting yourself or one of your fellow singles a thoughtful present. These items will remind you of the good things that come without a second in your life.
