Have you been hearing more about this thing called "Galentine's Day" but have no clue as to what it actually is?

Galentine's Day is an unofficial 'holiday' maybe it should also be called a day of celebration. The 'day' was started in 2010 for 'ladies celebrating ladies.' The day is observed on February 13, the day before Valentine's Day.

It has also been suggested that it (February 13) was started by single people who were upset that they did not have a partner to celebrate Valentine's Day (February 14th). Galentine's Day can be traced to a character Leslie Knope on the show 'Parts and Recreation.' The female characters on the show created it to celebrate ladies, the quote from the TV show is "ovaries before brovaries."

If you were confusing Galentine's Day as a day where single people are just trying to have a good time around Valentine's Day then you aren't quite correct.

Think of it this way, February 13 is Galentine's Day for ladies to celebrate ladies. February 14 is to celebrate love with couples and February 15 is the day where people who are not in a relationship are potentially depressed because that is what is known as Singles Awareness Day.
