Galentine's Day: Friends celebrating friends

How to Have a Galentine's Day

If, like Leslie Knope, your favourite day of the year is "Galentine's Day", you're in for an absolute treat.

For those of you are also a little bitter about Valentine's Day and would rather gather around and talk sh*t about your ex, Electra Hotel also has the ideal event for you tomorrow! By the way, Grandma, if I knew the answer to your question, I would have done something about it by now. And if you don't believe us, you'll definitely believe the queens of music themselves.

Galentine's Day is all about celebrating friendship.

Who says a candlelit dinner has to be for lovers? "Friendsgiving", a Thanksgiving celebration with friends rather than family, is often attributed to another NBC sitcom, "Friends".

"Every February 13, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home and we just come and we kick it, breakfast-style", Knope narrates in a voiceover as the show flashes back to Galentine's Days of the past.

"I'll probably video call my boyfriend later that day because we're both busy on Wednesdays but if I could have my ideal Valentine's day with my friends, we would probably have brunch and then go shopping", Dalman said. "It's like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas!" It's the all-girls' answer to Valentine's Day, an all-out, no bitterness, just-for-fun celebration of the love women share for one another. "It's "Galentine's Day" for all of us here in Goa". For the event, the coffeehouse teamed up with For All Handkind, an organization that helps those who are new to the world of handcrafted goods, creating a "crafternoon" where patrons had the opportunity to make glass wall hangings.

Today is not a day for plotting how you're going to ruin your ex's life. It's a day for singles to support each other and recognize that they don't need to be dating someone to feel loved and awesome. And Gifford, in a post-interview email, explains, "S$3 o many holiday traditions put a lot of work and labor onto women's shoulders".

Poehler's character introduced the holiday during season 2 of the show.

Just do me a favor - stay away from any kind of pyrotechnics.

We all like to fantasize that our most beloved TV friendships exist off the small screen, as well, but the truth is that it's rarer than you'd think.
