AND WHY YOU NEED TO CELEBRATE IT!
BY THIS & THAT
As February has rolled around so has love heart chocolates and pink roses in the windows, but (maybe to your surprise) not everything in the month of February has to have something to do with that special someone SHOCKER! So celebrate Valentines day or avoid it, that’s up to you, but nothing should stop you from having a go at something many of us know and love as Galantine’s Day.
What is Galantine’s Day? I can imagine many of you are asking me that right now. Galantine’s Day is a day people have come to know and love over the past eleven years, thanks to the fictional character Leslie Knope of Parks and Recreation. In 2010, a Parks and Rec episode aired titled “Galantines Day,” where Leslie gathers a group of her closest girlfriends and goes for champagne brunch, because let's be honest…where would we be without all the ladies in our life?
There’s no wrong way for you to celebrate Galantine’s Day with whoever you choose to. Whether that be your girlfriends like Leslie did, or you choose to celebrate with other ladies in your life, ones in your family, your mum, your neighbour, its all up to you! Whether you gather for happy hour, a picnic by the beach, an at home movie night with all your favourite snacks, take this opportunity to show your love to all the girls you couldn’t live without.
Galantine’s Day is a day of friendship, a day of celebrating the people who stick by your side no matter which way life takes you or how many relationships come and go. This is about the most important people in your life, because if we are all honest, no matter who this is to you, where the heck would we be without them?
