Single Awareness Day

why is lingerie so popular?"

How do you celebrate Valentine's Day? A nice romantic dinner out? A box of chocolates? A mushy card? A quite evening at home with that someone special and perhaps a bottle of wine? That's all great for couples.

But what about singles? Recognizing that some singles choose that lifestyle and would rather not be in a relationship, I cannot help but think that they get the short end of the stick on Valentine's Day. I mean, what do they care about a day to commemorate romance and sweethearts?

In honor of my single friends, whether they are that way by choice or not, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce another holiday: Single Awareness Day.

So as not to take away from Valentine's Day, perhaps Single Awareness Day could be celebrated the day before or the day after Valentine's Day. In this way, mid-February celebrates both; the singles and the couples. The way I see it, celebrating the one and not the other is discriminatory. Nobody wants to be discriminated against, not to mention that fact that in most places it is actually illegal to do so. If nothing else, recognizing Single Awareness Day is simply a sign of political correctness.

How would we celebrate Single Awareness Day? Well, being the humorist that I am, in my way of thinking it should be with humour (much like this post). I am going to kick off this year's February Valentine's / Single Awareness days with little "love" notes left on people's car windshields. No name; no phone number; just a simple little note that says: "Call me! I'm pregnant!"

Now doesn't that sound like fun? I can just see the look on some people's faces now!

Happy Single Awareness Day. 😏😏😏
