Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of Galentines Day

Leslie Knope, a character from the sitcom Parks and Recreation is such a powerful individual that she managed to single-handedly create a national holiday.

Every year on February 13th, we will be celebrating "Galentine's Day", a Knope-invented occasion where ladies celebrate ladies. The glorious day is designed for women to honor their female friendships by showering them with love and gifts.

As Leslie says in the show: "What's better than Christmas, Chanukah, Halloween, and Valentine's Day combined? Galentine's Day, that's for sure. What a perfect way to celebrate female friendships in the form of an extravagant holiday.
"It makes total sense that this holiday should exist because we already have a day celebrating our romantic partners on February 14th. Why not have an entire day where we honor our platonic friendships? After all, they are just as important as our relationships with our significant others."
