Galentine’s Day | February 13
(Last Updated On: February 10, 2023)


On February 13th, Galentine’s Day brings women together to celebrate each other every year the day before Valentine’s day.


Women all have that one friend who cheers on her female companions. She is their best supporter, listener, and companion. No matter what, she has your back. She’s the lady who celebrates ladies. This day is the kind of day a woman like that would throw a party, and she should.

The festivities include women of all walks of life, kicking back, and enjoying being women! The day celebrates successes and overcoming failures and brings women, ladies, and girls together for a good old-fashioned session to drink, eat, talk, and celebrate each other.

In 2010, during the sixth season (2010) of the comedy Parks and Recreation, character Leslie (Amy Poehler) throws an annual Galentine’s Day party for her girlfriends (ep107 “Galentine’s Day”). Gradually, the idea of Galentine’s Day parties has taken off. By 2017, several national businesses began promoting the celebration, and it began to trend.
