This very special day, immortalized in the show Parks & Rec by the hilarious Leslie Knope, was created to celebrate, in an official capacity, the joys of female friendship (GALentine-get it?)
Celebrated the day BEFORE Valentine’s Day is meant to be spent with your beloved female friends (or truly all platonic friendships) because without our friends, we lose out on all the joys that they bring.
As we grow older, it’s harder to find and maintain friendships. Life can get in the way, but on THIS day, we are meant to carve out time to celebrate the joys of having friends.
As Leslie Knope says, Galentine’d Day should be celebrated:
“While eating waffles and drinking fizzy cocktails, celebrate the women in your life, Knope-style, by sharing with each one in attendance why you treasure her friendship.”
