To all of you poetic, noble, land mermaids out there: Happy Galentine's Day! Leslie Knope has given us a lot to be thankful for over the years, but perhaps her greatest gift to this world has been the national — yes, national — holiday, that is Galentine's Day. Just in case you're wondering what it is, here's the description, according to the founding mother of Pawnee Galentine's: " Oh, it’s only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and boyfriends at home and just kick it breakfast style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus, frittatas!" What's not to love?
The "Galentine's Day" episode first appeared in the Season 2 of Parks and Recreation and has since returned on the series and become its own holiday — one that is celebrated worldwide by women who just want to tell the other women in their lives how truly special they are. The fact of the matter is, we should always treat every day like Galentine's Day. The world would be a so much more majestic place to be.
In honor of this most beauteous day, which should be filled with lady love and mimosas, here are some fabulous Galentine's Day wishes from your favorite TV shows. Enjoy!
