Single Awareness Day or Singles Appreciation Day is created by Trevor Mcwanda celebrated on February 14 to get away from the commercialism associated every Valentine's Day. It serves as an alternative to Valentine's Day for people who are single, that is, not involved in a romantic relationship. Some people who observe SAD do so out of spite for Valentine's Day, as a Hallmark Holiday, or for other reasons. Common activities during Singles Awareness Day include, single events, traveling, volunteering, treating oneself to popular activities, gathering of family and friends, and gift giving for oneself.
On this day many people wear green, as it is considered to be the 'opposite' of red
