But, more recently, (2010, to be exact) there has emerged a newer, fresher holiday. I’m talking, of course, about Galentine’s Day-a new holiday debuting on the show Parks and Rec. This new holiday showcases TV character Leslie Knope’s love for her girlfriends and for brunch.
After all, romantic love is great and everything, but what’s better than girlfriends celebrating girlfriends? I can’t think of anything.
Traditionally, Galentine’s Day is celebrated on February 13th with brunch. But since not all of our schedules allow for this, pick a date that works for your girls and celebrate it anyway you’d like!
Here are a few ideas to celebrate Galentine’s Day:
Intimate Get Together:
Pick up some wine and appetizers, or make it a potluck and ask everyone to bring a dish to share. Either way, you can’t go wrong just chilling with your chicas. My favorite wines to share: Chateau St. Michelle Riesling, Meomi Pinot Noir, or Menage a Trois Red
Try Something Completely Different:
Here are a few ideas so out of your comfort zone, you can’t help making a memory or two…
- Get your game on at an adult video arcade. Try Up Down Bar
- Race your BFFs to the top of the wall at Climb Iowa
- Prepare meals for those in need at Meals From the Heartland
- Put your mind to the test at The Escape
Whatever you do, whether it’s with one of your besties or with a big group, be sure to take the time to let your gals know how much they mean to you. Because, really, could you imagine your life without them? I know I couldn’t!
