Galentine's Day Campfire scheduled for 2/10

Adrian Holman

The Will County Forest Preserve will be holding a Galentine's Day Campfire on Thursday, February 10th from 7 PM to 8:30 PM CST at Hammel Woods in Shorewood, IL. The Galentine's Day Campfire will be held at Campfire #4, which can be accessed from the Hammel Woods entrance off of Illinois Route 59. The campground is about a quarter of a mile from the parking lot.

After reading that above paragraph, you may be wondering, "What in the world is Galentine's Day?" I asked the same question as well, so I looked up the meaning of Galentine's Day.

This new holiday came from the fictional holiday Galentine's Day that was used in 'Parks and Recreation.' The term is a combination of gal and Valentine's Day. The holiday was intended for women to celebrate their friendships with other female friends on February 13th. The idea for Galentine's Day is now used for women that feel excluded if they are not dating a man when Valentine's Day rolls around. I have never watch 'Parks and Recreation,' so I never knew that Galentine's Day is a thing.

Registration is required in order to attend the Galentine's Day along with a $5 fee because that will keep the creepers and the incels away from this event. You can register by calling the Will County Forest Preserve at (815) 727-8700 or enrolling online at this link. At the time of this writing, there were only seven spots remaining.

If you do plan to attend this event, then please "prepare accordingly" because the campfire will of course be outside. I do not want you to catch hypothermia at Galentine's Day Campfire. Hot cocoa will be provided. However, you can bring your own liquor to the occasion along with your own chair.

Since I learned a new term, Happy Galentine's Day to all of the ladies out there.
