I like the idea widening the scope of Valentine's Day to be more inclusive to those who may not be in a romantic relationship. Rather than sit on the sidelines, feeling exluded from the fun & excitement couples get to enjoy on this day, celebrating with good friends and family means that everyone can take part, and make those who would be left out feel special too. I think this is especially important for high schoolers or college-aged young people, who may feel especially hurt by the prospect of being excluded and long for the days of elementary school, when everyone got valentines & treats. It's the exclusiveness of Valentine's day that I think makes so many single people hate the holiday. The more the merrier!
