Find out how a made-up holiday can become a celebration of your gal pals!
Galentine’s day is the only good fake holiday on the calendar, and we have Amy Poehler's Parks and Recreation character Leslie Knope to whole-heartedly thank for it. Fret not! Whether you're single, happily coupled, or somewhere in between, taking a day to acknowledge the importance of your girlfriends is just the right antidote to all the V-Day hooplah out there in February. Want to know more about what Galentine’s Day is? Here’s the full breakdown.
What Is Galentine’s Day?
Galentine’s Day is celebrated on February 13, the day before Valentine’s Day. It’s the day we devote to celebrate the love we have for mainly our BFFs. You know the people who hold your hair back when you’ve had one too many martinis? Partners and booty calls come and go, but your best friends are for life.
How Do People Celebrate?
Either, you pay tribute to Leslie Knope, the godmother of Galentine’s Day or you gather your closest chaddi-buddies for a night on the town. Make sure to tell your friends what they mean to you! It’s definitely not necessary to have a fancy dinner, or pop champagne (though there’s nothing wrong in doing that) but all you need to do is to tell your friends how your life would be the first half of Bridesmaids without them.

Why Should Girls Have All The Fun?
Nope. In spite of its name, anyone and everyone can celebrate Galentine’s Day. Everyone can’t have a squad like Taylor Swift. So just take Galentine’s Day as an excuse to get together and have a rager with all your mates. Women, men, non-binary. If you can party, you’re invited.

In these uncertain times, all you want is the antidote to stress. And what better than a relaxing massage oil for your BFFs to rid them of their stress and worries?

So when you use Glow Relaxing, its fragrances help you dial back the stress, release tension and engage your senses. One whiff sends you straight to cloud nine.
So, is Galentine’s Day acknowledged as an official holiday?
Trust me, it would have been excellent if it was, but Galentine's Day isn't a national holiday till date. But as a ray of hope, online searches for Galentine's Day have increased manifold, so you can bet people all over the world are celebrating this day with their besties.Tempted to touch:
