Holidays for single people—the other February holidays
February might be coming to a close, but it’s never too early to prepare for next year! Here’s a list of alternative holidays for those who hate Valentine’s day or just need another reason to celebrate.
Feb. 4: Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day
Who needs a relationship when you could have not just one, but TWO partners—Ben and Jerry? They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why not spend it with those you love the most? Ben and Jerry are never going to give you up, never going to let you down, never going to run around and dessert you.
Feb. 6: National Chopsticks Day
Carry on family tradition with the National Chopsticks day—I mean, your parents probably wouldn’t approve of your significant other if you had one anyway. But let’s hope that your current relationship status doesn’t “stick” like that piece of rice that’s eternally attached to the underside of your sock.
Feb. 7: Wave All Your Fingers at Your Neighbor day
Let all your neighbors know that you’re a single lady with your trademark Beyonce wave. Besides, your neighbors are always fair game. As long as they haven’t seen you in your pajama-clad, Sunday morning best.
Feb. 12: National Lost Penny Day
You know what they say: Find a penny, pick it up; all day long, you’ll have good luck. After all, you’ve got Babe-raham Lincoln to keep you company. He might only be worth one cent, but his love is practically priceless.
Feb. 13: Get a Different Name Day
Maybe it’s just your name that’s causing your relationship struggles. I mean, if your name and your partner’s name can’t be combined into a good “ship” name, are you guys really meant to be?
Feb. 22: Be Humble Day
It may be the perfect time to reflect on how awesome you are as a single individual who don’t need no significant other, but not everyone is as great as you are. Keep the bragging to a minimum, unless you’re bragging about your dog. He can wag, but he can’t brag.
