Galentine's Day—A Day for You and Your Lady Friends
So, we already know a little bit about Galentine's Day—it's a made-up holiday that celebrates love for your gal pals each year on February 13. But, where did it come from?
Galentines Day comes from the American comedy TV series, Parks and Recreation. This same show also brought you another amazing made-up holiday: Treat Yo' Self Day. (Yes, you better treat yourself each year on October 13th).
Galentine's Day is a portmanteau of the words gal + Valentine's. The fictional character, Leslie Knope (played by Amy Poehler), birthed the holiday more than a decade ago in the show's second season. There are seven seasons, by the way, so this holiday has been on our calendars for a while—since 2010, to be exact.
On Galentine's Day, a day dedicated to your best girls, celebrate the ladies in your life and pamper them!
