Galentine’s day: no guys allowed

Galentine's day: no guys allowed

GalentineDay, the unofficial holiday when women and girls gather to celebrate friendshiptakes place on Feb. 13 every year. With origins tracing back to American sitcom, “Parks and Recreation,” this celebration has gained popularity through social media 

I love that such a fun holiday was invented so recently. I look forward to it every year,” Devyn Damiano, sophomore, said.  

Most people think of it as a day to celebrate being single; with their friends, they can distract themselves from all the couples gathering on Feb. 14 to celebrate the traditional Valentine’s Day holiday. On Galentine’s Day, girls get together, make plans to attend a fancy dinner, and buy chocolates and flowers for one another. 

I am so excited to spoil my friends and eat yummy food and desserts for Galentine’s Day,” Tessa Liles, senior, said. 

Students at Etowah have many different plans for the day.  Some juniors are planning on eating at Tuscany, going ice skating, and getting iccream 

“Every year, my friends and I make plans for Galentine’s Day to distract ourselves from Valentine’s Day. This year we have a lot plannedand I cannot wait to celebrate with my friends,” Laurel O’Brien, junior, said.  

For students who dread this time of the year because they are not part of a couple, try making it a positive experience by treating friends on Galentine’s Day instead
