The holidays, especially from a marketing perspective, can become somewhat of a blur. Before one is close to taking place, the merchandising for another is sitting right alongside it. This year even before the New Year got underway, the stores began displaying hearts of red and pink and a variety of Valentine’s sweets. Come January, the message was clear to all that it was time to start planning for Valentine’s Day. If you love the holiday, that’s wonderful, but perhaps you see the day of love being the domain of couples and elementary school children. If that sentiment describes you, there’s a growing movement out there that’s is modifying the sentiment of Valentine’s Day to make it more inclusive.
Not yet on Every Calendar
If you haven’t yet guessed, we’re talking about Galentine’s Day. Celebrated on February 13th, Galentine’s Day began four years ago as a fictionalized holiday on NBC’s Parks and Recreation TV series with Amy Poehler. The premise was that while February 14 was for couples and lovers, the day before was all about getting together with the faithful girlfriends in our life. Fast forward several years and the phrase Galentine’s Day has evolved from a vehicle for a sitcom punchline into a fun day of celebration for women across the U.S., single or otherwise.
Being a newly crowned holiday, Galentine’s Day is more about having fun with your female friends rather than about honoring set traditions. Some celebrate the day with brunches or happy hours while others make or buy small gifts for their friends.
