Over the past decade, Galentine’s Day festivities have gained popularity. Galentine’s Day, popularized in 2010 from character Leslie Snope of NBC’s Parks and Recreation series, is pitched as a chance for “the gals” to hand out before the couples’ dominated Valentine’s Day on February 14. The unofficial holiday is fast approaching on Feb. 13, and for those looking to celebrate their friendships, several Galentine’s Day event opportunities are happening in the Orlando area this week.
