GALENTINE'S DAY - February 13

Galentine's Day - February 13


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! Celebrating successes and overcoming failure, the day brings women, ladies, and girls together for a good old fashioned session to drink, eat, talk, and celebrate each other.

HOW TO OBSERVE #GalentinesDay

Invite the women you know to celebrate the day in all their glory. Bring their favorite wine, beer, cocktails, and mocktails. Snacks, dips, chips, and appetizers of all kinds welcome. Turn up the music, dance, and groove the day and night away. Give each other a pep talk, TED talks or have a venting session. Whatever works for you. Do makeovers. Or get dressed up and go out for the night. Book a cruise and take off for the weekend. No matter your style, do it your lady’s way. But be sure to use #GalentinesDay to share it all on social media.


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.
