Is Valentine’s Day just not your thing? Then why not celebrate Galentine’s Day on February 13 instead?! A great day to spend time with the women that are near and dear to your heart. At TopVintage we love honouring women and their friendships and that’s what Galentine’s Day is all about. Here are 3 reasons why you should celebrate this day with your bestie. 

What is Galentine’s Day?

In 2010 the term Galentine’s Day was coined by Leslie Knope, the Parks and Recreation fictional main character. In one of the episodes she explains what Galentine’s Day is: “What is Galentine’s Day? Oh, it's only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it... ladies celebrating ladies." That’s how Galentine’s Day started. Ladies celebrating ladies! dancer emoji

3 reasons why you should celebrate Galentine’s Day 

1.       For all the single ladies

So Galentine’s Day is celebrated on February 13, the day before February 14 a.k.a. Valentine’s Day. A day that many singles dread. It's 2023 and it definitely seems a bit old-fashioned to only have a day celebrating romantic love. As far as I’m concerned celebrating a close friendship is every bit as important, or maybe even more so, than celebrating romantic love. So wouldn’t you much rather have a fun date with your friends instead of worrying about your relationship status or crying your way through The Notebook?! heart emoji

2.       Galentine’s Day equals wine

This is a time for catching up with your girlfriends and really get into all the gossip. And of course, that’s even more fun over some delicious wine and snacks. A great excuse to spend a few hours drinking wine with your friends. wine_glass emoji

3.       Gift-giving and receiving

Your girlfriends understand you no matter what you’re going through. Friends are there when you need a shoulder to cry on and they are there to cheer you on and celebrate your successes. Galentine’s Day has made its way over here from the US and it’s the perfect occasion to surprise each other with a sweet card or a gift. After all, your friends are the ones who know you best and know what you like. And of course, it’s the same the other way around, so surprise your friend with one of our unique gifts.

Mark Galentine’s Day in your calendar 

As we are getting older, it also seems like we’re getting busier. This makes it harder and harder to get all of our friends together at the same time for a good old-fashioned get-together, Be sure to mark February 13 in all of your calendars, so you won’t forget to celebrate your friendship. I personally think that celebrating the friendships with your friends is a great initiative and it would even make a great national holiday. wink emoji So, gather your friends and go for it!
