To all the ladies, instead of getting excited about Valentine’s day, what you really need to do is get pumped up for Galentine’s Day.
What is Galentine’s Day you ask? According to Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler’s Parks and Rec character), Galentine’s Day is the best day of the year. It’s a fictional holiday that is celebrated on 13 February, a day before Valentine’s Day. It is a day where women celebrate women, the love between them, their special bond, and the mere beauty of each other.
And here is how you can celebrate Galentine’s Day with your girlfriends Leslie Knope Style.
1. Eat Waffles.
Galentine’s Day is a day dedicated to having good times with your girlfriends and what better way to do it than eat waffles. Start your Galentine’s Day with some tasty waffles and don’t hesitate to choose the toppings you like.
2. Go Shopping.
I heard somewhere that shopping is women’s best pass time activity and when you have your girlfriends with you, shopping gets even better.
3. Exchange Gifts.
As if there is any reason to get and give gifts. Shower your best girlfriends with gifts they’d love and bring a smile to their faces.
4. Do a Sleepover.
The best way to celebrate Galentine’s day is by doing a sleepover with your best buddies. This way you can catch up to so many events you’ve missed from each other’s lives and you’re guaranteed to having a good time.
5. Talk About the Past.
It’s always fun reminiscing the past with the people you spend it with. Talk about the silly mistakes you made, the past relationships, and all the fun you used to have when you guys used to be together. However, your conversation should not just limit to the past, talk about future plans and what it holds for you as well to make the conversation interesting.
6. Throw a Party.
If you’re the party animal and you have tons of girlfriends, you can always throw a massive party and invite all of them and have a Galentine’s Day to remember.
7. Ladies Only Cocktail Party.
If you’re more into a smaller circle, having a ladies only cocktail party can be the way to go. You can either go out and celebrate or turn your place into a bar and go crazy.
8. Do Each Other’s Makeover.
Makeup is women’s best friend and what better way to celebrate the favorite holiday of the year experimenting with different lipsticks and eyeshadows. You can bring out the inner makeup artist in you and give your bestie a makeover she deserves.
