Galentine's Day!

February 14th is a day for romance, for chocolates and roses and Hallmark cards in the sacred tradition of St. Valentine…but the day before is for the time-honored tradition (you know, since 2010) of celebrating gals! First introduce by Leslie Knope, played by Amy Poehler, in Parks and Recreation, Galentine’s Day is a day anyone can celebrate by recognizing the women in your life who are like majestic winged unicorns.
