13 Galentine's Day GIFs To Share On The Cutest Day Of The Year


The winter holidays that receive the most recognition take place towards the end of the year, but that doesn't mean there is no reason for a chilly soiree. There are, in fact, a lot of holidays during February. So far, Groundhog Day and the Super Bowl have already taken place, which leaves Valentine's Day and the best day of the year (in Leslie Knope's eyes): Galentine's Day! You will want to be adequately prepared, of course, with Galentine's Day GIFs.

If you haven't been blessed by Parks and Recreation, Galentine's Day might be a new concept to you. It is an ~informal~ holiday created by everyone's favorite local government official, Leslie Knope of Pawnee, Indiana. In her words, Galentine's Day is a day that, "...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.”

Fast forward almost a DECADE (can you believe?), and the plot of one episode of television has become a bonafide cultural phenomenon, and changed the way women all over the country celebrate gal pal-hood forever. On February 13 — the day before Valentine's Day — ladies come together to enjoy their love and friendship with the help of brunch and booze.
