• On Good Things Utah this morning – February 13 is one of the most anticipated days of the year, and no, that’s not a mistype. Sure, the 14th is all about valentines and heart candies and romantic relationships, but the day before is a celebration of female friendships everywhere—it’s Galentine’s Day! And we have several epic ways to celebrate a Happy Galentine’s Day in 2023.
    • What is Galentine’s Day?
      • Made famous by Amy Poehler’s Leslie Knope in the TV series Parks and Recreation, this fictional holiday has gained a lot of traction in the real world ever since the initial “Galentine’s Day” episode aired in 2010. And as Leslie describes it, “It’s only the best day of the year! Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it—breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies.” No matter what your relationship status, the bond you have with your besties is something none of us should ever take for granted. Catchy sayings like “uteruses-before-duderuses” and “ovaries before brovaries” summarize this holiday well, and remind us that the women in our lives deserve to be honored and revered!
