Galentine’s Day is the day before Valentine’s Day on February 13th. And while Valentine’s Day is about you and your boo, this holiday is just for the ladies. Leslie Knope from the cult classic, Parks and Recreation, brought this holiday to life over a decade ago and it’s become a day for celebrating the ladies in your life. And a perfect excuse to get together and exchange gifts!
