It’s a day of appreciation and being together.  Doing something out of the ordinary with each other.  Valentine’s Day is about really enjoying having your loved ones in your life, whether you live with them or go on dates with them.  So do something different – the best alternative is camping, of course.  Or picnicking, or ice-skating, or sitting on your porch looking at the stars.  Besides, everyone else is going to the movies or a restaurant.
