It's February again—it's that time of the year when starry-eyed lovers worldwide celebrate their affection for each other, but who says this holiday is exclusive to couples? Instead of moping on your couch and waiting for a date, make the most of this day by spending it with people you love in the comforts of your own home. Here are some ideas to consider: 

1. Set up an entertainment area and hold a family movie marathon

Hearts' Day is not just about romance, it can be about family, too. Once you've set up your home theatre, invite your family for an afternoon of watching rom-coms, singing karaoke, or playing video games on the X-Box.
