Let’s be honest, who wouldn’t rather spend mid February with an over-the-top girls night out than with some guy who’s going to dump you before your birthday rolls around? Romantic relationships are fleeting, but friendship never ends. Right, Spice Girls?

Galentine’s Day is all about female friendship. It’s a time to get all your best gal pals together: your friends, your coworkers, your mom, your hairdresser, your Brazilian bikini waxer — whoever!

Make Leslie Knope proud this February 13th! Here’s how you can celebrate Galentine’s Day too:

Eat brunch — preferably waffles.

As Leslie would say, “We need to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles, work.” Leave the men at home and kick it with your gal pals, breakfast-style. There’s nothing better than grabbing brunch and catching up with your bestie.

Host an event.

Galentine’s Day is all about ladies celebrating ladies. You should take time to do what you and your besties enjoy doing most. Whether you want to throw a karaoke party at your place or host an at-home spa day, you’re bound to have the time of your life without men around.

Go out dancing.
