Never mind that, like Seinfeld’s Festivus, it was made-up holiday for a sitcom. Galentine’s Day, popularized by Parks and Recreation, has been a thing since 2010. The holiday, during which girlfriends spend time with one another and celebrate female friendships, falls on February 13. No flowers or Valentine’s candy the following day? No problem. We know who loves us, gets us, supports us, commiserates with us and makes us laugh. Our besties!
The holiday, during which girlfriends spend time with one another and celebrate female friendships, falls on February 13.

- Spa pedis or massages
- A lunchtime gym date
- A long catchup chat
Good for you!
