12. But Galentine’s Day is a holiday that celebrates the importance of female friendship and empowerment.

13. So, really, it should be celebrated 24/7.

14. You don’t have to be pressured into impressing your significant other.

15. You’re just hanging with your gals, so you can be yourself.

16. Hallmark has nothing to do with this authentic holiday. It's an occasion to appreciate the good friends you have in your life.

So, ladies, don't worry about going out this year on Valentine's Day.

The day before will be a billion times more fun and wonderful.

Kick back with your gal pals, and celebrate the relationship that stands the test of time: friendship.
