1. It's An Excuse To Dress Up & Go Out With Friends
Valentine's Day does not need to be spent with a romantic partner.
Even if you're single, the chance to adopt Leslie Knope's "Galentine's Day" tradition as your own is just one of the many reasons to celebrate V-Day.
Most of the Valentines Days are spent with your close buddies & friends. Dressing up, eating delicious food, drinking delicious wine, and having hilarious conversations with friends always wins over spending February 14th with a love interest for most people’s opinion.
2. To Stay In & Relax
Regardless of what romantic comedies tell you, there's nothing wrong with spending Valentine's Day with some delicious food, wine, weed, Game of Thrones, and a good pair of sweatpants.
If your friends are planning to spend Valentine's Day with their partners and you don't want to go out on one of the coldest, busiest days of the year, stay at home.
There's no shame in having a fantastically relaxing night surrounded by all of your favorite indulgences.
3. If You're In A Relationship, It's A Chance To Treat Your Partner
If you have a wonderful partner, you already know that you should try to express your gratitude to them on a daily basis.
However, life gets in the way, and it's easy to take a good partner for granted.
So, if you're fortunate enough to be in a fun, healthy relationship with a giving partner whom you adore, Valentine's Day is the perfect occasion to celebrate.
You don't even have to take them out or buy them a gift if the two of you aren't into that sort of thing, but just having them in your life should make you happy on Valentine's Day.
