If you didn’t know, Galentine’s Day gained popularity thanks to Parks and Recreation’s optimistic-as-ever leading lady, Leslie Knope, who used February 13 as a day to shower her favorite women with sweet gifts and kind words.
The Parks and Recreation episode originally aired on February 11, 2010. Galentine’s Day has become revered and celebrated in the years after the show’s airing.
Awareness of the holiday spread thanks to social media with #GalentinesDay trending on Twitter, Instagram and Tumbler.
This is a day for “ladies celebrating ladies,” best friends, sisters, moms, grandmoms. It’s just another chance to show them just how much they mean to you.
