Galentine's Day is a movement that was founded by Parks and Recreation character Leslie Knope (played by Amy Poehler).
The special day is typically celebrated on February 13, the day before Valentine's Day. It is a day where women can get together and celebrate being women. Women can talk about good times, plans for the future and what you mean to one another.
Galentine's Day was made up as a response to the reputation of Valentine's Day being a romantic holiday celebrated by couples only. With Galentine's Day, women can celebrate friendship and one another. It is fun, inclusive, and no one ends up crying at the end of the day (happy tears don't count).
Ladies, if you find yourself lacking a romantic partner, I encourage you to grab your closest gal pals for an after work dinner. Pop open some champagne bottles and talk about the good times!
Happy Galentine's Day to all the amazing females out there, and a special shout-out to all my female friends. Love you ladies!
Love is in the air, and with Valentine's Day just around the corner, consumers are bombarded with all things related to love. Restaurants will soon be receiving a flood of reservations. Jewelry stores will see an increase in revenue, and marriage proposals will be given out like free iPod. Those who are single may find themselves on the outskirts of life, cursing that cherub Cupid, and rolling their eyes at couples who are in love. This can be an annoying and stressful time for those who are single, but it doesn't have to be.
There are ways to celebrate this season of love, even if you are single. For instance, you can celebrate the love you have for yourself. The most important relationship you will ever have is with yourself. If you don't have love for yourself, no one else will be able to love you. With that in mind, here are some ways you can celebrate the love you have for yourself.
