Wondering what is Galentine’s Day and how to celebrate? Well, we have 13 Galentine’s Day cards at the bottom of this post to help you celebrate. But let’s dive into what the day is and where it came from first.
Galentine’s Day falls on February 13, the day before Valentine’s Day. And while similar in concept to Valentine’s, this is a day where women celebrate close friendships, mentors, and fellow females you motivate or inspire them.
It may not be an “official” holiday, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t celebrating it!
So, What is Galentine’s Day, and Where Did It Come From?
“Oh, it’s only the best day of the year.” – Leslie Knope
The day was first introduced to masses on the NBC TV series Parks and Rec. In a 2010 episode of the series, Leslie Knope (played by Amy Poehler) hosts a brunch for her girlfriends. t’s simply ladies celebrating ladies… and leaving their husbands or boyfriends at home.
How Do We Celebrate?
Over the years, the made-up holiday has gained a lot of traction. It’s a day that women look forward to celebrating with their friends – and now even brands cash-in on the day.
It’s nothing to stress over and nothing you have to buy expensive gifts for. It’s just a day to hang out, have fun, and celebrate your gal pals. You could host a get-together, head out for a night on the town, or go to a Galentine’s party with your friends. It doesn’t matter if you’re single or married, this day of “love” is about recognizing and appreciating the remarkable women around us.
An additional way to celebrate is by sending a simple note. We wanted to offer a more creative way for you to do just this. So we’ve created these 13 downloadable Galentine’s Day cards for you to show your appreciation to the most important females in your life – whether it’s a friend, family member, colleague, mentor, or female entrepreneur that you really admire.
