Happy Valentine's Day!

Valentine’s day has a reputation of cheesy dates and lots of chocolate, and while I’m sure there will be plenty of flowers delivered to the Alpha Xi Delta house this Wednesday, it’s also a holiday about loving our sisters.
We kicked off the week with a “Galentine’s” Day watch party of the The Bachelor. Junior Mackenzie Penny organized it, and it was a hit among the chapter. She said she wanted to plan Galentine’s Day to spread sisterly love during Valentine’s season. Being able to spend time together Monday night definitely helped us get in the spirit for the rest of the week, and our rec room is still covered in all sorts of decorations for us to enjoy.
“It’s fun to spend that extra time with my sisters and remember how important they are to me,” junior Rachel Shelton said.
It’s always nice to take a break from studying to hangout with our sisters, especially when it’s a Monday and candy is involved. Who doesn’t love indulging in candy?! Penny said she enjoyed laughing and joking around with her favorite people, as well as eating her weight in chocolate from the huge heart box Mom Jean bought for the party.
Of course we are excited for our sisters who get to spend today with their significant others, but the rest of us will still be celebrating Galentine’s Day and patiently waiting for the discounted chocolate tomorrow!
“We often get caught up in life and relationships, and this is a time for us to not think about boys,” Shelton said. “Instead, we can think about our girl friends and the relationships we have made with them.”
