From young students to old couples, everyone can celebrate this day with equal zeal.
History of Valentine’s Day
The name Valentine’s Day comes from Saint Valentine who was a Catholic priest in the 3rd Century Rome. There are many legends associated with Saint Valentine and the creation of Valentine’s Day.
According to the most popular legend, Saint Valentine helped Roman soldiers marry when it was banned by Emperor Claudius II. He did so for his strong belief in love. Claudius jailed Valentine but the saint kept spreading love. It is said that he also cured a girl’s blindness in the prison and wrote ‘from your Valentine' at the end of a letter before he was executed for his acts of spreading love. The date of his execution was 14 February, 270.
Valentine’s Day Celebration While Being Single As A Student
Students are best known for getting the best out of everything, be it a not-so-interesting class or Valentine’s Day date. In fact, they come up with the most interesting and romantic ideas for Valentine’s Day. But not every student is in a relationship. There are single students too who deserve a blasting Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day can be a beacon of love, but not necessarily of romantic love. If you are a student and single on Valentine’s Day, you can still enjoy your day by having interesting plans with your other single friends, family, or even yourself.
Things a Student Can do while being Single on Valentine’s Day
Can’t come up with a creative idea? Here is a list of things to do on Valentine’s Day as a single student:
- Go On A Date (With Yourself): Valentine’s Day for singles is the perfect day to show some self-love. If you love movies, book a movie ticket online and gift yourself some popcorn in the cinema hall. If you love food, you can go out for dinner in your favourite restaurant, just by yourself.
- Celebrate With The Missing One: Intense focus on studies sometimes leaves little time for your loved ones. You can celebrate Valentine’s Day with someone you feel affectionate for but can not take out extra time for him or her. It can be old friends, grandparents, or even your teacher.
- The Gift Of Learning: Is there anything that you want to learn but is hesitating to do? Like swimming or playing the piano. Give yourself the gift of learning by taking admission into a swimming class, music class, or any other class of your choice.
Valentine’s Day is for everyone – couples and singles alike. The difference is how it is to be celebrated.

Have at least 3-4 ideas and get the best out of your Valentine’s Day.
