Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on your outlook, February is upon us. For those if us in relationships, this is exciting! For this of us who do not have a significant other, including myself, the thought of Valentine’s Day creeping up can become a bit depressing…daunting…annoying…any number of things. But have no fear! Luckily, I am pretty experienced with singleness, so I am determined to make sure we all have a super fun Valentine’s Day regardless of relationship status. First step: we’re going to rename this holiday Galentine’s Day.
Here are some ideas for a wonderful “Galentine’s Day” which will help you love and embrace both yourself and your single life! (PS: I know that February 14th falls on a Thursday, so if any of these things sound fun to you but won’t exactly fit into your mid-week schedule, take a raincheck and celebrate a belated Galentine’s Day over the weekend!)

I love Thanksgiving. Love it. It is a day full of sitting on the couch watching the Macy’s Parade (and the dog show that follows it) and hanging out with your favorite people and eating some dang good food and wearing a cute sweater.
Perhaps the best part about Thanksgiving is that it is the doorway to Christmas season! (My family has a yearly tradition of picking out our Christmas tree and decorating the house the day after Thanksgiving.)
But all of that aside, let’s talk about thankfulness for a hot sec.
While Thanksgiving is a secular, American holiday without any true religious meaning, God still cares about thanksgiving. Now, I don’t mean Thanksgiving with a capital “T”; I mean just “thanksgiving.” They are different.

We’d all like to think we’re generous: we hold doors for people or hand a few dollars to the homeless man on the corner of the freeway exit.
