Looking forward to Valentine’s Day this year?
How about buying into Galentine’s Day? It’s the day that fiction was turned into fact when TV character Lesley Knope of the American hit show Parks & Recreation invented the single girl’s alternative to Valentine’s Day.
So it’s no surprise that women everywhere are now championing Galentine’s Day; it falls on the day before V Day and espouses friendship and empowerment over the notion of needing a man in your life.
It’s a day to be surrounded by your favourite girlfriends whether you’re going out-out or simply watching movies in your PJ’s, coming at a time of year when relationships slump the most.
In fact, solicitors have branded January 8th as ‘Divorce Day’ after seeing a surge in business each year, while studies show that “expectation holidays” such as Valentine’s Day can put pressure on people who are not in a relationship.
So what could possibly be better than receiving a card from one of your BFF’s with a personal video message? Or a bad and hilarious joke, if that’s more your style.
Irreverent next-gen greetings card company Choosey are the first to produce a range of Galentine’s Day cards with a difference that mark the occasion.
