Galentine’s Day

What is Galentine’s Day?

Galentine’s Day is a holiday celebrated on February 13th, the day before Valentine’s Day.
The holiday was first popularized by the television show Parks and Recreation, in which the character Leslie Knope (played by Amy Poehler) declares it a day to celebrate and appreciate women’s strong, supportive friendships.

Galentine’s Day is all about celebrating the bond of female friendship. It’s a day to appreciate the extraordinary women in your life, whether they are your best friends, sisters, mothers, or any other woman who has positively impacted your life.  A time to tell these women how much they mean to you and how much you value their friendship. It’s not just limited to women. Men and non-binary folks can also participate in Galentine’s Day and celebrate their friendships with other men and non-binary folks.

Since this day of celebration falls on our broadcast day, we took this as a sign from the universe, and took notice and decided to join up The Nooks and put on a Northumberland Galentine’s party!


Starting at 7pm The Nooks will be the place to spend the night with your best friends.

Chef Seb will have some delicious shareable available, which can be all washed down with a signature cocktail created exclusively for the occasion.
At 8 pm, Maria Papaioannoy Duic will hit the airwaves live for Northumberland Women. Guest will include business maven Colleen Imrie and Social media influencer Tasha Cook!
Not local to Northumberland County?  Don’t worry, there are still ways to celebrate! Here are a few ideas for you to celebrate Galentine’s Day with your besties!

Host a girls’ night with your closest friends. You can make it a potluck-style dinner party where everyone brings their favourite dish and pop in your favourite movie!

Book some time at your favourite spa, go bowling, hit a rage room or simply plan a fancy dinner out.

Giving thoughtful gifts to your friends. You can give them something personal, like a homemade card or a photo album of your memories together. You can also provide them with something practical, like a book or a journal they’ve wanted to read. Or something simple, like a thoughtful message or a heartfelt letter. It doesn’t have to be expensive, its the thought that counts.


This is one thing I will be doing this year! Expressing gratitude to the incredible women that I have in my life. This can be done by popping a card in the mail, sending an email, or picking up the phone and telling them how important they are to you.

Galentine’s Day is a special day to celebrate and appreciate women’s strong, supportive friendships. It’s a day to tell the extraordinary women in your life how much they mean to you and how much you value their friendship. It’s a day to celebrate all forms of love and connection and to give back to your community. Mark your calendar for February 13th and celebrate the bond of female friendship.
