Galentine's Day and Valentine's Day are actually all about the same concept. However, Galentine's Day is all about the celebration of friendship, while Valentine's Day celebrates romance and love. Galentine's Day is therefore dedicated to people who are close to us as friends and not connected with romance.

What is the history of Galentine's Day?

A fictional character by the name Leslie Knope is believed to be the root of Galentine's Day. It was all a creation of the 16th episode of the Parks and Recreation second season. The episode revolved Leslie's favorite tradition, Galentine's Day. Leslie then marked the Day with plenty of waffles and excessive gifting as she celebrated her friendship with female close friends and colleagues. The celebration was in 2010, and that marked the first time Galentine's Day was observed.

Why celebrate Galentine's Day?

Galentine's Day was established as a holiday to celebrate women and show how important women are.
