If Valentine's Day doesn't float your boat then maybe you should consider celebrating Galentine's Day?
Formed by a blend of gal and Valentine's Day, the celebration of friendship came about as the result of a 2010 episode of the award-winning US sitcom Parks and Recreation.
Leslie Knope (played by Amy Poehler) decided that the day before Valentine's Day - February 13 - would be dedicated to celebrating her female friends.
The word was mentioned again in episodes that aired in 2012 and 2014, and by 2016 people everywhere were embracing the idea of a holiday for celebrating friendships, not just those among women.
So how can you celebrate Galentine's Day?
Well it can be as simple as letting your friends know you are thinking of them.
Of course, if you want to follow in the footsteps of the day's creator, Leslie Knope, you can host a brunch for all your gal pals, either at home or in a local restaurant.
Be sure to include the waffles and mimosas.
Perhaps you could plan a female family reunion?
It will offer amazing opportunities to learn more about the various generations of women in your family and appreciate their life experiences as well as their new stories.
Or maybe you could bring your Galentine's celebration to the streets (or sites) by first researching women-led ventures and then shopping in-person or online to support them.
