SO, WHAT IS GALENTINES DAY?

Every holiday worth celebrating is rooted in deep and meaningful historical culture passed down from generation to generation, right? So, when we first heard of Galentine’s day, our minds went whirling. What is this mystical Galantine’s Day and who celebrates it?

From the words of Amy Poehler’s hit character Leslie Knopes from Parks and Recreation, “Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it breakfast style. Ladies celebrating ladies.”

Yes! You read that right! Galantine’s Day was created from a 2010 episode of the show Parks and Recreation, and gives women the chance to celebrate their friendship in style with a holiday of their very own! *Swoon*
