Love Carefully Day

Back in 1976, the Zero Population Growth society launched an effort to get Valentine's Day rebranded as "Love Carefully Day," as a way to bring awareness to the problem of teen pregnancy.

"Happy Love Carefully Day" doesn't have quite the same ring to it as "Happy Valentine's Day," but their effort must have been somewhat successful, because Google reveals that even this year a few places, such as Allan Hancock College, will hold Love Carefully Day events.

The teen pregnancy rate today is less than half of what it was in 1976.
