Friendships make the heart grow stronger
Happy Valentine’s Week! The holiday is just too big for one day, so let’s celebrate all week! Especially for those of us who not only celebrate Valentine’s, but also “Galentines” Day, a day to be with your best gal pals!
Here’s a brief history of Galentines Day: If you were a fan of Parks and Recreation, you might remember in the second season Leslie Knope brought some of her best girlfriends together for lunch on February 13th, and it became Galentines Day. It’s enough of a holiday that Cosmopolitan has come up with a list of gifts that you might want to buy your gal pals because, as the article says, “it’s a day dedicated to showing the most important people in your life how much you care about them. It’s corny. It’s cheesy. And that’s what makes it great.” Pure Romance also has a gift guide for your gal pals with goodies they’ll be sure to love!
There’s also science behind celebrating your friendship, according to an article by the Mayo Clinic. “Good friends are good for your health,” says a recent article. “Friends can help you celebrate good times and provide support during bad times. Friends prevent loneliness and give you a chance to offer needed companionship, too.” Celebrate your friendships with a Galentines party! Click here to throw the best Galentines party ever!
Whether you’re celebrating Galentines or Valentines, make it a week to remember!
