6 Ways To Spend Valentine's Day With The People You Love Most

For some people, Valentine's Day is their favorite day of the year. It is filled with love, and they have an idea of their plans. However, for some, Valentine's Day can be stressful. Where will I go? What will I do? Here are 6 ideas for how you can spend Valentine's Day with the people that make your life so special.

1. Go out to your favorite restaurant.

We all have a favorite place that we love to eat, so what could be a better way to celebrate a day about love than to eat food that has a special place in your heart? Grab some friends, and go somewhere that you couldn’t live without. (If I were doing this, I’d probably go to Chipotle because who doesn’t love burritos?!) Talk about your days, and take time to appreciate the amazing food you’ll be eating!

2. Watch a movie that you couldn’t live without, and it doesn’t necessarily have to be about love.

Movies are a great way to spend a date or just spend time with a group of your most special friends on Valentine’s Day. If you’re into love stories or romantic comedies, today is the day for you to choose a movie! However, if you’re not, going to a movie or sitting down in your own home (maybe in pajamas with some snacks) also means that Valentine’s Day is a great day for you! Choose a movie that you love because this day, after all, is about love.

3. Express love to the people around you, but also take time to treat yourself.

If you are around the people that you love in your life, take time to express the blessings in your life and how they may play a role in these.Valentine’s Day may just be about romantic love to some, but to others, it is simply a day to reflect on elements of their own life that they love. Although it can be important to express love for others, also remember to treat yourself on this lovely day. Do something that makes you genuinely happy. If you are able to spend time with the people you love doing something that you love, do it!

4. Go to the store, and buy your favorite candy.

There has always been something exciting about getting to go to the store and pick out my favorite candy or snack. On Valentine’s Day, go to the store with some people that you love, and get some candy that you love! (Candy can also be a great gift if you’re struggling with buying a Valentine’s day present.) Being able to eat your favorite candy, surrounded by people that you love, is sure to put a smile on your face! Valentine’s day can be happy, so show your beautiful smile!

5. Explore the city around you... try going to a new shop or a new place that you’ve never been.

If you’re one who is always up for adventures, make one out of Valentine’s Day! Go out and try a new restaurant or maybe go to a boutique that you’ve never been to before! Going on an adventure is a way to celebrate if you’re in love with exploring and with finding new elements all around you. Gather up people that you love, spread happiness, and go on an adventure that will help you realize that love is all around us!

6. Sit down and talk about why you love/hate Valentine’s Day.

Valentine’s Day can cause mixed feelings. Some people love this day because they receive gifts from a significant other, or maybe they just enjoy getting discounted candy the day after Valentine’s Day. On the other hand, some people despise this holiday. Maybe they aren’t spending it in a romantic way, or maybe they just believe it’s simply not a meaningful holiday. Whatever your feelings, make this something you can do on Valentine’s Day! Hang out with some friends, a significant other, or anyone else you love, and rant about your positive or negative feelings towards Valentine’s Day!

Whether you have plans for your Valentine's Day or not, I hope that these 6 ideas have inspired you to spend time with the people who you love most. Make sure to spend this day about love with people who bring you up and with people who love you for who you are!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.
