On Galentine’s Day, and every day for that matter, let’s not forget about some of the most important loves of our lives. Our female friends!
Amy Poehler, Aubrey Plaza, Rashida Jones, and Kathryn Hahn certainly aren’t forgetting their favorite ladies. In a recent post, Plaza posted a picture of herself with the three other aforementioned stars from Parks and Rec, celebrating each other on Galentine’s Day!
G-Day, celebrated one day before Valentine’s Day, stems from the episode of Parks and Rec where the characters set aside a day simply for ladies to celebrate other females. It has since become a cultural phenomenon, many preferring this day to the actual Valentine’s Day Especially for those people who don’t have a Valentine—they no longer have to feel left out.
This tradition began in 2010 with the Parks and Rec episode titled “Galentine’s Day” and has become a holiday unofficially recognized by many. Despite Parks and Recs going off the air in 2015, the females from the cast continue to reunite once a year in honor of the day and each other. Every year, Plaza posts a new picture on her Instagram with the group.
Aside from the Parks and Recs cast, businesses such as Sprinkles Cupcakes, Lyft, and Target promote Galentine’s Day—and there are a ton of cards available for purchase. Even First Lady Michelle Obama recently posted on her Instagram, shouting out her female friends for keeping her sane and grounded.
In Manhattan, in honor of the tenth anniversary for Galentine’s Day, Monarch Rooftop Bar offered brunch for $40—featuring menu items such as frittatas and waffles, Leslie’s favorite food, and “fries B4 guys.” Even though tabletop drinking games didn’t originate from the Parks and Rec episode, people at this brunch were also able to play prosecco pong to add a little punch (pun intended) to the celebration.
With all the negativity in the world, there’s never been a better time for females to honor one another. Besides, the movement of this day extends beyond females celebrating females: in general, it’s a day to celebrate your friends and to actively appreciate the people we have in our lives. Plus, if we get a mini Parks and Rec reunion out of it, even better!
