Galentine’s Day, or—more inclusively—Palentine’s Day is to Valentine’s Day what Friendsgiving is to Thanksgiving: an opportunity to honour and celebrate the love we have for our sidekicks, mates, compadres, and buddies. In other words, it’s the perfect opportunity to share a glorious giggle fest over games and grub!
