London - Are you ready for Galentine’s Day? No, not a typo - February 13, the eve of Valentine’s, is now the day when you’re supposed to celebrate your gal pals, showering them with cards and knick-knacks, perhaps even going on a "friends" date.
Galentine’s may be the invention of a character in American sitcom Parks And Recreation, but in recent years it has been creeping into the mainstream, complete with gift guides.
Oh help! Why do women do this to each other? Now, we have not one but two days to dread this week.
Has BFF Sophie popped a card in the post? Has old pal Kate bothered to send a text? If not, why not?
No, thank you. You don’t see grown men being encouraged to give each other matching bracelets to celebrate their "bromance". The whole Galentine thing seems immature and a sure-fire way to strain a friendship.
