Here’s How You Can Spend Galentine’s Day

Get your girls together to celebrate each other

Galentine’s Day is more than a fictional holiday; it is a day to celebrate and pour into your loved ones. As the years go by, more Zillennial women are making this cultural moment a time to uplift and embrace friendships in womanhood. Although social media makes jokes about having a Valentine, platonic bonds are also important.

Taking the time to enjoy your friends can strengthen your support system and positively change your mental health. For Gen Z’ers, being open to celebrating your friendships instead of dwelling on your love life can lead to a more significant outcome. This holiday allows your crew to get together, create new memories, and share laughter with one another. As you get plans together in your group chat, here are some new activities to try to celebrate Galentine’s Day.
