Ladies leave your man at home, because it's the ultimate ladies night!

Today is Galentine's Day, which is our favorite holiday ever created by a TV show and we are so happy it's finally here.

Since Valentine's Day is about love—or eating chocolate alone while watching movies (if you're single)—we'd much rather grab our favorite bottle of wine, those same chocolates and our BFFs to celebrate Galentine's Day instead.

What is Galentine's Day you ask? Well, it is a day dedicated to your lady friends that was invented by the one and only Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) on Parks and Recreation during the season two episode aptly titled, "Galentine's Day." 

"Oh, it's only the best day of the year," Leslie explains in the episode. "Every February 13th, my lady friends 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."

Even though this is a made up holiday, more and more people are starting to celebrate it and we really can't wait for it to reach national or international holiday status.

Over the years we've looked to TV shows and their amazing girl friendships to see ladies who celebrate ladies on the regular and on Galentine's Day we cheers to them and our BFFs because ladies stick together, duh!

We've been blessed with the Sex and the City ladies who taught us how to navigate romances, the ladies of Parks and Rec who taught us that compliments are always a good idea and the Gilmore girls who proved that mothers and daughters can be the ultimate friends.

There have been iconic friendships like the ladies who hung out at Central Perk on Friends and newer squads like the women of The Bold Type that have made us realize that whether you live with your besties or work with them, or just see them from time to time, having a solid group of girls is what we all deserve.

When it comes to fictional BFFs however, we have a serious question: which of our favorite TV girl groups below would you spend your Galentine's Day with?

Vote now and then send this poll to your best friends to see if they choose the same squad!
