What is Galentine’s Day!

In this edition of All the Moodz blog, the focus is all about celebrating the special women in your life…your girlfriends! More and more women celebrate Galentine’s Day, the day before Valentine’s Day on February 13th. Galentine’s Day is an opportunity for all who identify as female to acknowledge all of the females who have positively impacted their lives. That’s right, this holiday is a bonafide friendship fest!

With friendship in mind, this edition has several fun activities for you and your girls to do. This post contains several fun ideas: an easy and fun DIY, a hysterical quiz and digital greeting cards that you can both send out and share. Additionally, if you are among those who are still not familiar with this relatively new holiday, here is a bit of informal history. Believe it or not, Galentine’s Day was founded by a fictional character on a satirical sitcom, Parks and Recreation. Apparently, the idea was such a good one, real life now imitates fiction! So, get with the women you honor in your life and plan on having a great time!
