What is “Galentine’s Day anyway?

What is Galentine’s Day, you ask? It’s a legit question — especially if you never watched Parks and Recreation, where it came from — but if you aren’t observing this fictional holiday, you are missing out. As Leslie Knope once said, it’s only the best day of the year. And, well, she’s right.

Galentine's day

Basically, it’s like Valentine’s Day, only instead of celebrating the love you have for a crush, you spend it with your best girlfriends, who are, after all, your soul mates, and therefore deserve a holiday all to themselves, too. 

So starting today, this year, it’s time for “girls to celebrate girls” on this new found holiday, (thanks to our beloved and super funny,  Amy Poehler,) called Galentine’s Day!!
