What is Galentine’s Day?
Made famous by Amy Poehler’s character Leslie Knope in the TV series Parks and Recreation, Galentine’s Day is a chance to get your best girl-friends together and have a night that is all about the girls. We think it sounds pretty perfect! According to a survey conducted by Skinny Cow Ice Cream, 74% of women believe that there should be a holiday dedicated to celebrating friendships, while 1 in 3 state that their “first love” was in fact their best friend. Our friends go through everything with us, so a day to celebrate that is a brilliant idea, we think! Galentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to round everyone up and celebrate the love between friends.
71% of women surveyed said that their best friend understands them better than anyone else in the world, while 73% said that they feel much more relaxed and happier once they’ve had a good girly catch-up.
