S.A.D. NEEDN'T BE SAD
Seeing affectionate couples strolling about on Valentine's Day is romantic for some, but for those who feel left out, there's an unofficial holiday to observe on Feb. 14 (or Feb. 15): Singles Awareness Day. Plan ahead with single friends to celebrate the unattached life and take a break from the commercialism of what many think of as a "Hallmark holiday." These 10 activities all cost significantly less than the traditional Valentine's Day gifts, flowers, and dinner out.
