Valentine's Day is a holiday dedicated to celebrating love, and has come to be a holiday for romance and couples. Sure, you can celebrate with friends and on your own, but all of the marketing out there really makes it all about romantic love. But Galentine's Day? That's a day dedicated to the other special people in your love: your girlfriends who are always there for you. Who wouldn't want to celebrate that? There are so many things to do on Galentine's Day that it can be hard to know where to start, which is why we've listed a few ideas for how you and your friends can get together.
Galentine's Day may have been thought up by fictional character Leslie Knope (played by Amy Poehler) on Parks and Recreation, but since it became popular, it's basically become an actual holiday.

Or you can even do something on Feb. 14 if you want.

There are plenty of more low-key options that will help you guys have a great time and make some wonderful memories. Check out a few below:
