According to Cosmopolitan, Galentine's falls on the 13th of February, the day before Valentine's, and it's basically the friendship version of Valentine’s. 

Although the day started as a celebration for women to celebrate their platonic love and sisterhood, it has become popular for friends of all genders.

The best part of Galentine's is there's no need for a romantic dinner and gift-giving. This day is basically a free for all, and friends can use creative ways to celebrate this day. 

Now, the biggest question is: is it only for single people? The answer is – no!
