What Is Galentine's Day? How Parks and Rec Created a Holiday Celebrating ...

Aubrey Plaza , who played notoriously apathetic intern April Ludgate on the show, shared a sweet selfie with former co-stars, Amy Poehler (Leslie Knope) and Rashida Jones (Ann Perkins), celebrating their Galentine’s Day together on Wednesday.

During season 2, episode 16, of Parks and Rec, the world was first introduced to the glory that is Galentine’s Day by Poehler’s well-loved character.

In the episode, Knope explains what Galentine’s Day is and arranges for her female friends to “kick it breakfast style,” giving out hand-knit presents and essays she wrote about what makes each woman special.

Since the episode first aired, Leslie Knope’s tradition has been popularly adopted, with women all over the world celebrating Galentine’s Day.

It can be as simple as grabbing a drink or dinner after work, or a movie night (maybe even binge-watching Parks and Rec ) with some favorite snacks at home.

At the end of the day it’s about spending some quality time with incredible women in your life, being grateful for their friendship and empowering one another.
