Every year, Valentine’s Day arrives, and the world is divided between those who adore it, those who despise it, and those who have no opinion at all.
Regardless of whether you love or loathe Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day is the anti-Day Valentine’s to celebrate everything there is to rejoice about platonic love between friends.
When and what is Galentine’s Day?
Galentine’s Day is a day dedicated to commemorating exclusively female friendships, and it is observed annually on February 13th, the day before Valentine’s Day.
Leslie Knope, a fictitious character on the comedy Parks and Recreation, who was portrayed by Amy Poehler, helped to popularise the day. In the episode “Galentine’s Day,” which aired in the second season of the program in 2010, Leslie and her female pals gather for their special annual brunch the day before Valentine’s Day.
What is Galentine’s Day, Leslie asks in the episode? Only the best day of the year exists today.
“On February 13th, my girlfriends and I just come over and have breakfast and kick it, leaving our partners and husbands at home.”
“Ladies enjoying themselves.”
Galentine’s Day is observed in what way?
The ideal way to commemorate Galentine’s Day is to get together with your female friends and participate in any activities you prefer. Whether you decide to go on a hike or, like Leslie Knopes, have brunch, it is totally up to you how you and your friends choose to celebrate.
Watching movies on female characters and their friendships, such as Bridesmaids, Booksmart, Mean Girls, Girls Trip, Bad Moms, Clueless, Hustlers, Bring it On, Legally Blonde, and Thelma & Louise, to name a few, is a common way to celebrate.
With a Netflix or NowTV subscription, you can view Parks and Recreation in the UK if you want to see the program that initially popularised Galentine’s Day.
Galentine’s Day has gotten so popular over the past few years that you can actually get cards from companies like Oliver Bonas, Funky Pigeon, Thortful, Card Factory, and Papier which are specifically designed for the pre-Day Valentine’s occasion.
