Only the best unofficial holiday.
First coined by Parks & Recreation character, Leslie Knope, played by the most awesome Amy Poehler, this epic holiday has transpired from fiction to tradition. You don’t have to be a fan of Parks & Rec (which takes place in a made-up town here in INDIANA) to be a fan of Galentine’s Day. You just have to be a fan of awesomeness, lady friends and waffles.
When is Galentine’s Day?
The government should declare it a national holiday. But we get it: they’re just trying to stay open. So while we wait for Congress to get back to us on that one, we’re here to explain this perfect day. Galentine’s Day is celebrated each year on February 13th, the day before Valentine’s Day. And, it’s much more fun.
So what is Galentine’s Day?
It’s a good question with a simple answer: Galentine’s Day is really all about ladies lifting up ladies, and that is something we can definitely get down with!
Celebrate with your Gal pals!
It’s the perfect chance to get your friends, your sister, your mom, your grandma, local lady leaders, your coworkers and all your gal pals together. And do together what you do best, CELEBRATE.
It’s about ladyfriends. And waffles. Because as Leslie Knope says, “Why would anyone eat anything besides breakfast food?”. And, we don’t think it’s a coincidence that the Swedish holiday Våffeldagen (Waffle Day) just happens to fall on Vårfrudagen (Our Lady’s Day). Women and waffles are just meant to be celebrated together! Brunch is just the beginning though.
Or Netflix binging and pinning crafts you won’t make and foods you won’t bake. Just order takeout instead. We’re not here to judge.
Share why you treasure each other.
Life may not always make you feel like the “poetic, noble land mermaid” that we know you are. So we need to remind each other. And that’s what the best Gal pals do.
