What is “Galentine’s” Day and should I be celebrating it?

Valentine’s Day comes round every year and is met with the same mixed reactions. Some people love it and all the cheesy clichés that surround it, whilst others completely loathe it. But this year there seems to be a new celebration on the block that’s grabbing people’s attention, ‘Galentine’s Day’.

What is it?

Galentine’s Day is basically exactly the same as Valentine’s Day, but instead of celebrating your other half, you celebrate the ladies in your life! A holiday designed by ladies, for ladies, the idea of Galentine’s is that you give thanks to everyone from your Mum and sisters, to your friends and Aunties!

Should I be celebrating it?

It’s completely up to you! It’s a non-official holiday, so you don’t have to take part if it’s not your thing. But it’s a fun, alternative take on traditional Valentine’s Day celebrations, so you can get involved with all the heart-shaped goodies without all the mushy love stuff.

If you do decide to celebrate this year though (we happen to think it’s a fantastic idea, because it makes you think how often do you really celebrate your fantastic friends and family) there’s a whole host of bracelets, bangles, earrings and other goodies you could send to your loved ones here at Wakefields Jewellers.

Be inspired and head over to our website now – there’s something for everyone to fall in love with this Galentine’s Day!
