Happy Galentine's Day to All Our Beautiful Tropical Fishes | Parks and Recreation (Deleted Scenes)
And Friendships Will Bloom Like Flowers
Galentine's Day-- Because we all have that friend, you can call from the dressing room and will answer a call at 4 am.
We have Amy Poehler's Parks and Recreation character Leslie Knope to thank for Galentine's Day. She debuted the holiday in a 2010 episode to celebrate her own female friends on Feb. 13, otherwise known as Valentine's Day eve. As Leslie put it:
“Every February 13, my ladyfriends 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 Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas.”
In that episode, Leslie showers her friends Ann Perkins (Rashida Jones), Donna Meagle (Retta), April Ludgate (Aubrey Plaza), Leslie's mom Marlene Griggs-Knope (Pamela Reed) and several others with gifts like handmade mosaics of their faces, crocheted flower pens and 5,000-word essays on why she loves them so much. They drink mimosas and, because this is Leslie we're talking about, eat breakfast food while the hostess goes totally over-the-top with her expressions of love.
