It’s Valentine’s week and love is in the air..and we just wanna buy a bunch of oxygen masks. Single people know how irritating Valentine’s day can get with couples shoving their lovey-dovey pictures and statuses down your newsfeed.

You don’t need to put up with that crap. We’ve come up with a list of alternate days you can celebrate on 14th February.

14th February isn’t just Valentine’s day y’know – there’s a bunch of other things that are celebrated on 14th Feb.

Start celebrating these things and flood your newsfeed with pictures to remind people that there are waayy  better things you can celebrate on 14th February. Thank us later.

Here’s the list:

International Book Giving Day

Book Giving Day calls on volunteers to share their favourite book with a young reader. Waste money on balloons and chocolate? No thanks. We’d rather devote the day instilling a lifelong love of reading in children and providing access to books for children in need. Just saying.

Extraterrestrial Culture Day

Extraterrestrial Culture Day celebrates extraterrestrial cultures and our past, present and future relationships with these extraterrestrial visitors.  Don’t sit around and wait for a girlfriend, wait for ET instead.  That’s more realistic.

Donor Day

Donor Day is a holiday that celebrates all those people who have helped save people’s lives by donating blood, marrow, tissue, and even organs. Why waste the day planning useless candlelight dinners when you can celebrate the amazing and giving human spirit? Why? Just let the guilt set in.

 

Pet Theft Awareness Day

Your pet is way more important than anything else (yes, we’re looking at your valentine.) Pet Theft Awareness Day is meant to call attention to the importance of pet identification methods. It is a day for considering just how much the presence of an animal can enrich a family and also the responsibility that goes with it.

 

Cream-Filled Chocolates Day

You don’t need to gift these chocolates to anyone. You got em all to yourself. That’s how it’s supposed to be.

Ferris Wheel Day

Honestly, we’d rather be 100 ft high in the sky inside a skeletal box attached to a giant wheel than be in a relationship.

Which one are you gonna be celebrating?
