Galentine’s Day

This year, the Harlequin blog reported on a new version of Valentine’s Day which is increasing in popularity – Galentine’s Day.

In case you’re wondering, Galentine’s Day originated in an episode of the TV series Parks and Recreation, and it’s celebrated on February 13th, the day before Valentine’s Day.  It’s the day when we leave our menfolk at home, and show a bit of love for our best girl friends.

So did you celebrate Galentine’s Day?  Or is the idea new to you, and do you like the sound of it?  We’re throwing the blog open for ideas on the best way to celebrate with your girl pals, so let us hear your thoughts!

  1. Never heard of it, but we have a yearly July reunion with all the nurses who worked at my last hospital, who are my “gal pals”. Our OB unit was closed in 2012, and consolidated with our “mother” hospital. Some nurses went with, others went to hospitals nearer to there homes and some retired. I had just gone out on disability 2 weeks before, and have become medically retired. This year we had over 30 nurses attend, coming from local cities in Florida, some From Texas, North Carolina, Georgia, Maine, California and Washington state.. so much laughter, tears, hugs and love. We ran the open house at my friends house and started at 11 am and the last stragglers left at 11pm, that way anyone working shifts could be there. Hoping for another big crowd this year! I find that my nurse pals are my best pals!

  2. Never heard of it, but I agree with Annie – the day before Valentine’s is a little too close! But yes, time with gal friends is always so nice, especially when they’re writer friends and we yack and brainstorm, leaving everyone feeling rejuvenated 🙂
