For those of you who live under a rock, or haven’t been influenced by Amy Poehler’s immensely successful, and utterly delightful television program Parks and Recreation, we have something to share with you.
“February 14th, Valentine’s Day, is about romance. But February 13th, Galentine’s Day, is about celebrating lady friends. It’s wonderful and it should be a national holiday… 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. It’s like Lilth Fair minus the angst. Plus frittatas. ”
So there you have it ladies celebrating ladies. Something that sadly doesn’t happen enough. There is way too much girl on girl hate (flash back to one drunken evening when I seemed to deem everyone a unicorn). So what’s better way to take a stand against this trend by getting together to celebrate mutual respect and admiration for your fellow gal. A day when we put all the other drama away and concentrate on the relationships we have with our friends. And not to get too cliche, but really who doesn’t love a good ladies brunch day.
This post may be a way to gush about how much I love my lady friends in disguise. A guise, have you. I have been blessed to be surrounded by an incredible group of women, many of whom I have seen grow up and flourish in front of my eyes (cheese). I’m so proud of all of them and I am so happy that there is finally a mainstream, topical day to celebrate the friendship you have with your fellow lady. Breakfast foods and champagne makers, rejoice! (I see you Chandon.) Not to mention, that if Hallmark is allowed to create holidays than NBC has every right to.
