Galentine's Day is a concept first mentioned in the hit US comedy Parks and Recreation.
As womxn, we rely heavily on our girlfriends/girls/bezzy mates who always have our back for their constant support. Galentine's Day is a day to appreciate them. To shower them with love and to share just how grateful we are for their presence in our life.
Way ahead of her time, a heroine from another US hit TV show, one Ms Carrie Bradshaw once declared that maybe our girlfriends are our soulmates and our partners are just people to have fun with. Yeah, we ad libbed a bit.
