Not in the mood to conform to this bizarre, consumerism driven, hallmark holiday? Here are ten ways to avoid the crowds and spend the evening with your girls!
If you have access to a car, grab your girls and go catch a double feature at the drive-in! Bring your own snacks and snuggle up in the cold for a couple cheesy rom-coms . http://www.nwarocks.com/local-news/arkansas-drive-in-theaters/
Nails, face masks, hair masks, all the masks. Get some much-needed R&R with your squad. http://talkspas.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/Spa-Party.jpg
Hide from the date-night mayhem and avoid dining hall food for the evening. Make yourselves a home cooked (or microwave cooked) meal to enjoy together. http://www.yorkhospital.com/uploads/Cafeteria.jpg
