If you haven’t heard of the term “Galentine’s Day” yet, buckle up because you are about to fall in love.
February 14, Valentine’s day, is about celebrating romance. But February 13, Galentine’s Day, is about celebrating lady friends! ~ Leslie Knope
Truth is, this event includes women married and unmarried and particularity focuses on relationships between you and your lady friends.
In the 2010 episode of Parks and Recreation, Leslie creates a way to celebrate her relationships and friendships by creating a day for just that ~ she called it “Galentine’s Day,” a day for all the women around the globe to come together and share their love for one another. She also stated that this festival would fall on Valentine’s Day eve and involve a feast of a brunch- since then women all over the globe have been partaking in this holiday. Who would have thought it would become such a phenomenon?
Why not though, right?
Women deserve to honor and acknowledge their love for one another.
As Leslie explained it: “Every February 13, my ladyfriends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas.”
