by Chelsey Grasso

Ever wish there was a day where you could just celebrate your girlfriends for all the amazingness that they bring to your life? Well, your wish will come true (at least in the world of Parks and Recreation) on Feb. 13, when you can toast your lovely lady friends with these wonderful Galentine's Day quotes all day long. What's Galentine's Day you ask? Let me let the fictitious woman who started it all explain it:

"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."

Yup, that's a Leslie Knope quote, straight from one of the funniest television series ever made, Parks and Rec. While there may be some things about Leslie Knope that are a little off the wall, I have to say, girl got it right with this. Feb. 14 can be all about your significant other, so let Feb. 13 be all about those who won't leave you even if he does... your lifelong besties. Chicks before dicks, you guys. Always.
