With Feb. 13 around the corner, it’s almost time to celebrate the best holiday of the year: Galentine’s Day. The wonderful occasion — which takes place the day before Valentine’s Day, fittingly — is the day to honor all of the badass babes in your life. And while there isn’t a “right” way to celebrate Galentine’s Day, many ladies partake in the holiday by sending Galentine’s Day greeting cards to their best gal pals. After all, these cards are often both sassy, smart, and endearing—just like Pawnee’s very own Leslie Knope, the oh-so-wise creator of the holiday.
Ever since its first mention in Season 2 of Parks and Recreation, Galentine’s Day has been celebrated by women all over the world. And if I’m being honest, I am so glad it exists. Valentine’s Day, as you know, can place a lot of pressure on the concept of romantic relationships. But thanks to the annual Galentine’s Day celebrations, we’re reminded about the importance of friendships.
Now, that’s not to say you can’t take part in both holidays. Valentine’s Day can be a lot of fun, whether you’re practicing self-care or going out to dinner with your partner. However, it’s just as crucial to nurture and honor our friendships, and Galentine’s Day is the perfect chance to do just that.
