Happy Galentine’s Day!
A great way for women to have fun on Valentine’s Day, the once-fictional holiday is now a special day that many women celebrate with the special “gals” in their life.
Galentine’s Day came to life on the TV show Parks and Rec, when character Leslie Knope, played by Amy Poehler, declared the annual holiday, inspiring women everywhere to do the same.
“What’s Galentine’s Day? Only the best day of the year!” —#LeslieKnope
Women have Galentine’s Day parties and organized events and some have intimate gatherings at their home, where women drink, watch movies, play games and exchange gifts.
Galentine’s Day usually takes place the day before Valentine’s Day, on Feb. 13, but the best thing about this day is that you can celebrate it any time during February. It’s about celebrating love, period.
“Oh, it’s only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and boyfriends at home and just kick it breakfast style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus, frittatas!” – #LeslieKnope
