What is Galentine's Day and Should We Celebrate It?

Galentine’s Day started off as a joke coined by Amy Poehler’s character, Leslie Knope on the hit series Parks and Recreation. On the show Galentine’s day is a day where women ban together and celebrate friendship, sisterhood, and “lady love”. It’s all about women empowerment. Galentine’s Day has definitely become a thing since the airing of the episode and has turned into an international celebration. Here are some fun ways to celebrate February 13th aka Galentine’s Day.

 

 

1.     Pamper

 

Grab your friends and get in a little rest and relaxation. Whether that’s getting a manicure or going for a full out spa day.

 

2.     Decorate

 

Decorate your home or wherever you’re having your Galentine’s Day with cute colors, snacks, and other refreshments.

 

3.     Give A Gift

 

Show your friends some love by giving them a small gift. It could be anything from a box of chocolates to a gift card. Keep the cost low, it’s the thought that counts.

 

4.     Go Out or Stay In

 

There are no rules for this day so you can virtually do anything. Go out on the town or pick up your favorite movies and have a sleepover. Or cook a nice dinner together and celebrate.

 

 

Although this holiday is new I think it’s a good way to show your friends love. Some people get so bummed out on Valentine’s Day and they forget they have great people who love them right under their noses. Why not spend a day celebrating that? Give this day a try.  Enjoy your Galentine’s Day!
