Galentines Day started in the small community of Pawnee, thanks to Leslie Knope. Is Pawnee a real community? No, but that doesn’t mean that we haven’t taken the idea of Galentines Day and ran with it! Now we just need some Galentine’s Day quotes to help us celebrate.
Galentine’s Day quotes remind us what truly is important during Valentine’s Day: the love amongst friends. You may be familiar with one of the biggest shows of the 2010s, Parks and Rec.
You will know exactly what Galentine’s Day is all about if you are familiar with the show. However, not everyone watched, meaning some may be a bit behind on what’s happening in Pawnee.
You will have to know a bit about Leslie Knope before we can dive into what Galentine’s Day is and how it came to be. Leslie is a smart-ish, strong-ish, independent-ish woman who was Deputy Director of Pawnee’s Parks and Recreation department.
As Deputy Director, Leslie made it her mission to make the parks and recreational events around the city of Pawnee the best in the state, maybe even the country. Of course, every good leader knows that you need to surround yourself with intelligent people, and Leslie Knope failed to do that.
But she did surround herself with people who cared, for the most part. Some of the people Leslie surrounded herself with were women like April Donna and one of her newer friends, Ann Perkins. But they all were invited to Galentine’s Day.
The party is a tradition for Leslie, who wants to use this time to show her girlfriends just how much they mean to her. In fact, she even gave them portraits of themselves made out of crushed bottles from their favorite diet sodas and DIY crafts for Valentine’s Day.
We would like to celebrate Leslie and her invention of Galentine’s Day with Galentine’s Day quotes. They may not be the most romantic story ever, better than The Notebook, but they are the perfect way to celebrate Galentine’s Day this year.
Am I right, Justin? But they will pair well with some Valentine’s Day margaritas.
