This goes without saying, but your girlfriends are the best people in the entire world.

 

2. It’s a perfect excuse for a wine night… or wine day

And we never mind another excuse.

Even if you don’t go all out like Leslie usually does, gifts are always fun to give and receive.

 

4. This is one day completely free of boy drama

As much as boys can be nice and all, having one day dedicated to having fun with only your friends is so refreshing and lovely.

 

5. What other holiday do you get to celebrate your best friends?

Besides their birthdays, of course, which are national holidays.

 

6. Just imagine the pics

8. Your friends will always be there for you, love you and appreciate you

In all seriousness, your friends have been with you through everything, and they’ll always know you just a little bit better than any boy could. Galentine’s Day is the perfect way to celebrate that.
