Girls Valentine’s Day
If you ever wonder who is the queen of Galentine’s day the answer is Amy Poehler. Why? Well she is planted all over the internet with Galentines day quotes and memes. Even her quotes can be found on Galentine’s Day cards.
She is the queen, she is everyone’s G-Day queen (of hearts!)
What is Galentine’s Day?
“Galentine’s Day” is Seasons 2, episode 16 of the American comedy television series Parks and Recreation. Fictional character, Leslie (Galentine queen, Amy Poehler) throws her annual “Galentine’s Day” party for her female friends, celebrated the day before Valentine’s Day. Since then, Galatines day has taken off being celebrated by girlfriends, BFFs, mom/daughters, and friends around the world. This celebration turns every sad Schmalentine’s Day into a festive Girls’ Valentine’s Day celebration!
When is Galentines’s Day
Galentine’s Day is for the single lady and the taken lady. As shared above, Galentine’s Day is celebrated on February 13th. That leaves room for the girls who (dare) have a husband and/or boyfriend to still celebrate February 14th.
To further explain, this Galentine’s Day Quote form Leslie explains it best…
“Every February 13, 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.”
“Friends, Waffles, Work or Waffles, Friends, Work. Doesn’t matter. Work is third!”
Bring. The. Waffles.
