Whether you're a diehard Parks And Recreation fan or just a diehard best friend, you're probably pretty familiar with Galentine's Day. Though it initially entered pop culture as a gag on Parks And Recreation, it's now become a the best unofficial holiday of the whole year. In a Season 2 episode of the series, Amy Poehler's character Leslie Knope explains that she created the tradition to occur on Feb. 13, aka the day before Valentine's Day, to celebrate her lady friends and their beautiful friendships. "It's like Lilith Fair, minus the angst," she explains in the episode. "Plus, frittatas!" In the years since the show introduced the concept of the holiday, Galentine's Day has become a well-loved tradition for women all over the world — even those who didn't watch Parks And Recreation. And now, with another Galentine's Day fast approaching, I think it's fair to say that most women are trying to figure out everything from how to celebrate the day to what their funny Galentine's Day Instagram caption should be.

Celebrating Galentine's Day is as simple as getting together with your girlfriends, or showing your lady friends far and wide how much you appreciate them. Because while romantic love might come and go, your girlfriends are always there for you, and that's something worth celebrating. Whether you find the time to get together and have a big dinner party, or if you just have an hour to catch up on the phone, you can really show your friends how much you care about them by dedicating an Instagram post to your friendship. And of course, what's a good picture without a great caption?

We have to just hang together and help each other.” — Jane Fonda
