Hi guys! Happy Monday and happy Galentine’s Day!
What is Galentine’s Day you ask? Well sit back and let me shine some light on the situation…
Galentine’s Day is celebrated on February 13th, the day before Valentine’s Day. Galentine’s Day was invented by Leslie Knope, the
main character leading lady from the TV show Parks and Rec. Galentine’s Day originated in 2010 when the Galentine’s Day epsiode aired on TV on February 11th. Leslie describes it as being “only the best day of the year”. During this episode Leslie enjoys brunch (aside from Ann, her best friend. is Leslie’s other love) with all of her girlfriends and gives them all gifts to show how much she appreciates them and their love for her as a friend. She simply made up the holiday to return the favor!
Galentine’s Day is the one day of the year where you and your girlfriends can go out and enjoy breakfast food without the pressure of Valentine’s Day looming over your head! It reminds you that you don’t need a significant other (SO) to enjoy a very romantic holiday. This fictitious holiday that has gradually grown to become very prominent in real life. I heard of so many people hanging out today to celebrate the ladies in their lives (friends or family) because today is that day! It’s definitely one of the most underrated holidays, and it needs more observance this time of year when single people feel the most left out.
Galentine’s Day also makes the most sense because it’s dedicated to your best friends that will always be there for you, despite if your SO just left you… They’re the people that will know how to make you laugh in the hardest of times (more specifically when your makeup is running down your face and you’ve eaten half a tub of ice cream already…) Your gals are the ones who know how to get you over your ex and out and happy about life within the next 12 hours because they know just exactly what to say. Your girls will ALWAYS know what you need and when you need it, and you won’t have to say anything because of that unspoken connection.
“Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas.” ~Leslie Knope
