I am an un-ironic lover of Valentine’s Day. My family made it special. We celebrate our love for each other. I transferred that to as many other people in my life as I thought would accept heart-shaped cards without getting weirded out.
Then I got Netflix and started watching Parks & Rec for the first time this fall. Enter Galentine’s Day. Even more love to spread and people to celebrate. An excuse to tell women I love and appreciate them without the chance of a bitter undernote of resenting a lack of romantic interest. We don’t have to villainize or commercialize this love fest. Simply celebrate.
So how about it?
