What… you’ve never heard of GALentine’s Day? “Galentine’s Day” is in reference to an episode of Parks and Recreation from February 2010. In that episode, Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) throws her annual “Galentine’s Day” party for her female friends, celebrated the day before Valentine’s Day. And as Leslie explains,
“Oh, it’s only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas.”
