How Galentine’s Day Got Its Start

Galentine’s Day takes place on the day before Valentine’s Day, February 13th every year. When Leslie Knope first told us about Galentine’s Day in the cult classic TV show Parks and Recreation, it was so perfect that it felt like it had always been around. Valentine’s Day is about you and your significant other, but this holiday is just for the girls.

A Celebration of Sisterhood

Galentine’s Day is a day to celebrate female friendship. It’s a day to honor the people with whom you share secrets, advice, sadness, and joy. It’s a day for being stronger, and happier, together in spirit. And if you’re following in the footsteps of Leslie Knope, it’s a day to exchange gifts. A Secret Galentine Gift Exchange celebrates all the themes of your friendship and can be a great way to celebrate all the wonderful women in your life.
