Do512 Guide to celebrating Valentine’s Day for Everyone!

Oh, Hallmark holidays! Don’t we all just love them.  It’s that “special” time of year again when chocolate manufacturers, flower shops and greeting card companies encourage that THIS is the day, especially, to demonstrate your degree of affection to your darling dearest.

You guessed it. Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching.  Pressure is on. For those of you who totally just freaked out and possibly exclaimed silently to yourself “VALENTINE’S DAY IS NEXT WEEKEND!?!” Don’t panic. We anticipated you already forgot about it, or just chose not to put much thought into it (can’t blame you). Either way, gather round lovers and loners alike, check out this list of fun V-Day events to celebrate, Valentine’s Day, Singles Awareness day, or…heck…just the weekend!? Whichever you prefer.

On a side note, I’d like to include a tid bit of advice from Ashton Kutcher, cause we all know we should most definitely take his advice. But Hey! He has landed one of the hottest women in Hollywood and is staring in the new movie Valentine’s Day. Can’t get more qualified than that.

Ashton says, “I hate Valentine’s Day. I think every day should be a day of romance. Then, on Valentine’s Day you should get to tell whomever you hate that you cannot stand them. There would be one day of hating and 364 days of love,”

As Ashton is joking, don’t run and tell people you hate them. Point in case, we should all try to spend just a little time everyday telling someone you love them.

Aww. Okay now, check out the list:
