Galentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, which means couples and loved ones have started buying gifts for one another, and stores have started stocking their shelves with all things heart-shaped, pink, and red. It is also a time where girls like to get together and celebrate their own version of the holiday, which is commonly referred to as Galentine’s Day.

The popular workplace comedy TV series, “Parks & Recreation”, is highly credited with the creation and popularization of Galentine’s Day. Season 2 Episode 16 is entitled ‘Galentine’s Day’ and it features the women in the show celebrating their friendship and love for one another over a meal at a local restaurant. 

Galentine’s Day is meant to encapsulate all the loving, cheerful aesthetics of Valentine’s Day, but instead of celebrating it the more traditional way, it is celebrated with groups of girls who want to be festive taking pictures, eating heart-shaped foods, and wearing pretty outfits. As Galentine’s continues to gain traction and more girls join in the festivities, recent popular trends and ideas have been spreading across different social media platforms. Pinterest is the top place to gain inspiration for the ever-growing trend of Galentine’s Day celebrations. 

One of the most popular current trends is making heart-shaped pizzas. It is simple to make, yet super aesthetically pleasing and tasty. Other trending activities include making a photo booth area for pictures, watching a cheerful rom-com, or making festive mocktails. 

Galentine’s Day attire varies from matching silk pajamas to pink and girly dresses, with coordinating accessories and ribbons. It can be cozy and casual or dressy and fancy, depending on the vibe and preference of the group. Throughout the month of February, girls gather in various places to celebrate their love for one another. Thanks to the original holiday of Valentine’s Day, women both young and old can set aside time to specifically celebrate their friendships with each other in the holiday byproduct fondly referred to as Galentine’s Day.
