Here’s How To Have Fun On Galentine’s Day, The Best Day Of The Year

Via Seventeen:

Once upon a time, February had a bad rep. It was the most dreaded month of the year (for some).

If you weren’t in a relationship, it’s like only a time for couples. And if you were dating someone, there’s so much pressure to find the perfect gift and be Pinterest-level romantic.

But then, along came Galentine’s Day — the holiday that saved the most disliked time of the year. If you’re wondering how this day came to be, grab your box of chocolates and read on because this is the perfect Galentine’s day lowdown.

For your 411, it all started with a 2010 episode of Parks and Recreation titled “Galentine’s Day.” In the show, Leslie Knope (played by Amy Poehler) hosts a brunch on February 13th for her best girlfriends.

She said the event — held one day before Valentine’s Day — was all about “ladies celebrating ladies.” I mean, of course we all fell in love with this day. How could we not? From that point on, February 14 was pretty much canceled (jk) and Galentine’s Day quickly became the best part of the month.

So, how does one throw a Galentine’s Day celebration? Well, there’s no wrong way to do it. It’s as easy as telling your friends that you love and appreciate them. But, if you’re looking for a bit more inspo, read on!

Create a theme

Everyone loves a good themed party, and this is no exception. Instead of everyone just wearing pink or red, let them get creative. Maybe the theme is slumber party, and everyone wears fun pajamas. Or if its with high school friends, wear old prom dresses. Another idea is to make it pop culture focused, as in iconic female movie, show, and book characters.

Serve heart-shaped food

There’s certainly no shortage of heart-shaped eats during this time of year, from grocery store cookies to drugstore chocolates. But, how about a heart-shaped PIZZA?

Virtual Exercise or Dance Class

If you and your friends are constantly sending each other dance trends to try on TikTok, now is a great time to learn a few impressive moves. Sign up for the same virtual dance class together.

Unwind with face masks, scented candles, calming diffusers and mood lighting. This plan is exactly what it sounds like. Each bestie can wear a cute animal-themed sheet mask or a try  8-step korean beauty routines togther. After that rejuvenating treat, make and sip martinis together, why not!

With so many unique plans to choose from, remember, the goal is to have fun, so you can’t go wrong with any of these ideas.
