Tomorrow is the big day we’ve all been waiting for. Yes, November 25th will be a Friday to remember for all Gilmore Girls fans is back.
Why do I care? Well, this is the duo that made me hope for a certain kind of mother-daughter relationship. You know, fun, close, but with a sprinkling of authority rolled in (when I refer to the latter, I mean the mother having authority over the daughter).
Note: The invitation below is what my daughter would send me. I sometimes lack authority.
And the best way to celebrate the return of Gilmore Girls? Why a date night, of course. A mother-daughter date night, or a best friends date night or even a date night with yourself. This is Nextflix, yo. You can watch it all at once.
Why a date night with your girl? Well, Netflix did a little research and they found out that TV shows like Gilmore Girls help moms and daughters build a stronger relationship ( I know that when I watch just about anything with my daughter it’s a great bonding experience…)
If you like numbers (which I don’t, generally, but these are about TV and mother-daughter love, so I’l make an exception):
61% of mothers and daughters feel sharing TV shows with each other helps them build a stronger relationship
A recent survey revealed that almost half of women (45%) wish they spoke to their mother more often
More than half of mother-daughter duos surveyed (54%) report post-show discussions are the best part of sharing a show together
Almost half of moms and daughters (45%) think watching together brings them closer
I don’t know about you, but I’m all up in those stats. Except the second one. I speak to my mother. A lot.
Want to do date night like Rory and Lorelei would? We know you do.
Here’s how you can do it:
Step 1: Brew coffee
Step 2: Get Pop Tarts
Step 3: Get lots of other junk food plus burgers
Step 4. Get take-out also. There can never be enough food
Step 5: Rehearse extra fast witty repartee (did you know that Gilmore Girls had the most words spoken per hour of any show ever when it was first aired?)
Step 6: Snuggle in for some fun
Stay tuned for my thoughts on the show. I know I’ll have them, and I’m sure you’ll have yours. So we’ll have to have a nice chat over coffee.
