But first, a history lesson. Galentine’s Day originated from one of our favorite TV shows ever: Parks and Recreation. The main character, Leslie Knope, is known for her over-the-top displays of affection towards her besties.

Case in point? The holiday she invented, which falls the day before Valentine’s Day each year. As Ms. Knope herself explains it, the day is an opportunity for “my lady friends and I leave [to] our husbands and boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies.”
