Even if every Friday night feels like Galentine's Day to you, it's nice to have a day dedicated to your dearest friendships. If your Instagram becomes a fan page for your best friends on their birthdays, then Galentine's Day will make your social media a shrine to your besties. If inside jokes are too ~inside~ then you can use other funny captions for Galentine's Day Instagram post.
The day to celebrate your lady loves falls on Feb. 13, and this unofficial holiday turned annual tradition was created by the fictional character Leslie Knope from Parks & Recreation. If you're unfamiliar with this gloriously girl power day, Knope explains it herself:
"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."
Leave your significant other at home for waffles with your best friends. Raise a mimosa to the accomplishments of the ladies in your life. From work promotions to starting businesses to having a baby to gaining ten new followers on Instagram, whatever the reason, there is always an appropriate reason to hype up the ladies you love. This Galentine's Day share it with the world and include a funny caption.
