Why You Need to Be Celebrating Galentine's Day

Grab Your Gal Pals, because its Galentine's Day!

February 13, 2018

If you’re not familiar with the concept then be prepared to have your life wonderfully changed forever. Amy Poehler’s character on Parks & Rec, Leslie Knope, gets all her girlfriends together on February 13th to celebrate “ladies being ladies”. It’s a day of appreciation and love of one another – no partners allowed!

1. Friendships Need Celebration

Friendships are important; science even claims they are good for our health. And although they will chop and change during our 20s, it’s hard to dispute that they enrich our lives.

2. No Money, No Problems

You don’t need money to show appreciation for someone, you just need some creativity. You could go for a picnic, treat your friends to a home cooked meal, do at-home karaoke a la Ann and April or take part in a Parks & Rec marathon. The options are endless.

3. Get Pumped Gal Pals

The world may be full of negative crap but February 13th is a day to put it all aside and get excited about your BFFS.

To get you in the mood here is a list of times that Leslie Knope and Ann Perkins were just the absolute cutest friends. My personal favorite quote, “Uteruses before duderuses. Ovaries before brovaries”.
