National Girlfriend Day

Not quite like Valentine’s Day – this is about the girl friends. Two different words, referencing your friends. Not romantic entanglement, but friendly concourse and relaxation.

History of Girlfriend’s Day
Let us begin with what Girlfriend’s Day is – the day of the girl friend. A girl, well that definition is well and obvious for the most part. Occasional bending of that term may apply, but we all know what it means for each of us. A friend is a person whom one knows and with whom one has a bond of mutual affection. That doesn’t mean sexual relations, just relations. We all have relations, and a friend is one whom has a close relation with us, no matter the context, it is that relationship that details them as a friend.It is unclear where Girlfriend’s Day began. Some speculate it was started by a couple of different websites to bring women closer together, others speculate it was to be something akin to Valentine’s Day, but less about the gushy and mushy, more about the emotional context. Some even say it isn’t just about girl friends, but the boy friends as well, and your relationship with anyone! Do not be discouraged, let the heart guide you on a path that you find as the best, for you and your friends, girl or boy.

How to Celebrate Girlfriend’s Day
If you are really reading this for suggestions on how to celebrate Girlfriend’s Day, there may be a little hope left. Hopefully you know you girl friends, and what they like to do as you all get together. Pedicures, manicures, a glass of wine sitting by the lakeside….the choices are as endless as the friends we could have. Find the way that best helps you express what you mean to them, and just do it. If that means getting your hair done, or going out shopping, that is what this day is for. Find your common grounds, take the day and enjoy the company. Enjoy the buzz of a glass of wine under the stars, a book club meeting to discuss the latest romance novel, or even just sharing a piece of pie in a diner someplace. If it means more to you and your girl friends, that would be the way to go. Remember, it is not about the best thing one could ever do, but the close personal attachment one would have with their friends. So whether is over a cold drink, a warm beach or a hot meal, remember your girl friends and enjoy the day with them!
