Galentine's Day is a Day to Reconnect
For some people, February can be a tough month. It is still the dead of winter, so there are issues with seasonal depression during this time of year. Valentine’s Day is also this month and people can feel alone. Galentine’s day is a day for women to re-establish their relationships with one another and enjoy each other’s company. For Galentine’s Day, you can get together for everything from an intimate wine and movie night with a friend or two, or a full dinner with a group. However you choose to do it, things are all up to you for how to celebrate.
