Traditions and Celebrations Around the World That Will Make Single People Feel Better (Or Not)

Happy singles awareness day, we guess?

On this special day, family members, lovers, colleagues, neighbors, and, of course, friends exchange gifts, cards, or sweets as a public declaration of friendship.
