Host a Galentine's Party You and Your Friends Will Love16 Jan 2018
I have to admit, I had never heard of Galentine’s day until a few days ago and now I have totally fallen in love with the idea. A day to celebrate all of the lovely ladies in your life. Ladies celebrating ladies, sounds great right?! This is one that I am definitely going to mark on my calendar and you should too.
If like me a few days ago, this is the first time you’ve heard of the term, then let’s get you up to speed. Galentine’s Day is a holiday created by Amy Poehler’s character, Leslie Knope in the sitcom Parks and Recreation. Celebrated on the 13th February, Leslie explains on the show:
"Oh, it's only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It's like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas."
What better excuse to get all of your best girls together, throw a Galentine’s party worthy of Leslie Knope’s approval and celebrate the love…no boy’s allowed!
