"What's Galentine's Day? Oh, it's only the best day of the year."
Those are the wise words of Leslie Knope. And now actress and comedian Amy Poehler has followed in the footsteps of her kind-hearted character, gathering her Parks and Recreation co-stars around her to celebrate on 13th February.
Rashida Jones, Aubrey Plaza and Kathryn Hahn joined Poehler in this celebration of the power of female friendship.
Eight years after Parks and Rec invented Galentine's Day in an episode of the second season and inspired a generation of young women to celebrate their female friends, Rashida Jones (Ann Perkins) wrote on Instagram: Galentine's Day! Forever and ever."
Aubrey Plaza added: "happy happy galentine’s day. these women keep me alive."
