“Who run the world? Girls”- Beyoncé
It’s as exciting as weird it sounds. Galentine’s Day is now an official celebration of female friendships. Back in some 2009-2010, in a show called “Parks and Recreation”. The leading lady Leslie invented this unique & interesting way to celebrate the perks of female friendships. In today’s world, where feminism is a descriptive word for one’s personality. While you’d witness woman taking down a woman to satisfy her complexes, you’ll also get a glimpse of a lifetime female friendship. Galentine’s Day wasn’t much recognized but it very much got popular because the event found a market in real life. The now-official event is celebrated on 13th February, an evening before Valentine’s Day. The day is a fairly standard celebration.
This Day isn’t that famous in India, but I’d hope it gets as popular as Women’s day because we need it. Galentine’s day celebration would be such a delight to witness, women going out for dates with their girlfriends, partying with “Lady’s Drink” in their hands and singing from the top of their lungs! The idea of the day is so pleasing to one’s heart. If you’re finding reasons to celebrate this platonic love that female friends have for themselves, then keep reading.
Here are 10 of the many reasons, why you must celebrate female friendships because A. Why Not? B. #SistersBeforeMisters!
1. Reunite with the Women in your life!
What better way to get all your favorite women together for a celebration that’s larger than life!
2. Remember That?
When you have your girlfriends around you, its fun to look down the memory lane. Relive those memories you made while coming this long together.
3. “The Love” is miserable!
Oh well, having female friends is so much better than being in a relationship! Because Valentine’s Day makes some of us feel miserable. It reminds us of all those times when we were not thinking before dating “hunks” and then getting dumped! The only love that is constant is our girlies <heart>
4. Girlfriends are everything!
You’ve heard this right? When someone tells me not to tell anyone kind secret…my best friend doesn’t count! She knows everything and she’s everything. Female friendships are fascinating. They’re always there for whatever you need and whenever, be it relationship advice, chocolates, tampons, lipsticks or handling your PMS.
5. Women don’t fake!
That comes across different, but for women to women, girlfriends don’t fake. They’ll let you know when you look fat or sick, why are you dating a dumb head, they’ll tell you everything that you don’t wish to hear but you need to!
6. No.1 Support System!
Your girlfriends are your constant support. They would always keep you going no matter how many failures may come your way. They’ve got your back always, Always!
7. Two Body-One Brain!
Ever jinxed on almost everything that you say? Or she blurts out whatever going inside your brain? Yes, you guys share the same brain. It’s mind-boggling to know someone who has exactly the same thinking process. It feels like you guys found your way to each other among all these useless brains.
8. You be you, I be me!
Your girlfriend seems like home to you your heart. You guys can be yourself with each other. When together it’s like you unlock your true self.
9. They Deserve It!
With all that going in our lives, women having women is all we need. Having a female friendship is a blessing. They’ll be there when no one else would be. Along the ride, women get competitive, they think they need to win the race, but in reality, we need each other. Women deserve better and we can provide each other with the “better” at least!
Over the years, I only have few friends and they’re all females. Though I connect with males more than them somehow, I & my girlfriends have come a long way and in all honesty, it takes dedication & heart to preserve such friendships. The key is to forgive & forget the bad and celebrate the good in each other. We’re all flawed but we, as a woman can be there for each other completing each other. So, this 13th February goes out with your girlfriends and celebrate the love you all share. Because you all deserve it.
