Less focus on the gift giving/doing something special on this ONE singular day and more emphasis (especially for schools) on having healthy relationships and using valentines day as more an example of ways you can show your affections for your partner on a regular basis.

Re: [CHAT] Valentine's, Schmalentine's

Some ways to re-invent the holiday might be to change the way we talk/think about it, to challenge the expectation (whether out loud or in our minds) that we need to be in a relationship.

 

I think also showing affection for others in our lives e.g. friends/family on that day could be one way of shifting the focus from romantic love to all kinds. But I'm stumped when it comes to other ideas, to be honest...

Maybe make it more about community feeling, everybody supporting one another and genuinely caring and showing love? And other important things like showing love for the environment and stuff. Also making it more educative, learning about healthy relationships and communication skills and stuff. 

Also bees. It needs more bees. Smiley Happy
