Galentine's Day: It's ladies celebrating ladies. It's like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus, frittatas!

If you watch Parks and Recreation, you know exactly what Galentine's Day is. If you don't, let me give you a quick rundown: Every February 13th, aka Galentine's Day, Leslie Knope takes all her best ladyfriends out for a fancy breakfast. They celebrate friendship over brunch. It is literally the perfect day.

In honor of Galentine's Day, I've compiled a list of the eight best fictional female friendships (say that five times fast), in no particular order.

Ann and Leslie from Parks and Recreation
The originals. Maybe it's because I know Amy and Rashida are friends in real life, but you can just tell these two women really do care about each other. 
(I'm still not over Ann leaving the show.)

Lucy and Ethel from I Love Lucy
Everyone needs a hilarious BFF. Even if that BFF always finds her way into trouble (and drags you with her.)

Thelma and Louise from Thelma and Louise
The original 'Ride or Die' friends. I don't know about you, but I love a pair of beautiful women who don't take any crap from ANYONE. It's my favorite.

Annie and Lillian from Bridesmaids
I guarantee that if you watched this, you saw yourself in Annie at some point. And this movie has one of my favorite lines ever: when Lillian says "Why can't you be happy for me and then go home and talk about me behind my back like a NORMAL PERSON?!" because again: we've ALL been there. We've all bitten our tongue at some point, and then word-vomited all over the place after we left.

Mary and Rhoda from The Mary Tyler Moore Show
Mary and Rhoda proved to us that you and your best friend can want the exact same things out of life without competing with each other for those things. Also, Rhoda reminds me of myself: outspoken, opinionated, and super sarcastic. I loved her.

Robin and Lily from How I Met Your Mother
I've always wished for a group of close friends like the people on How I Met Your Mother, but I've always really loved Robin and Lily's friendship. 

Everyone in A League Of Their Own
The camaraderie! The girl power! The splits! These women have it all.

Jess and Cece from New Girl
I don't have any friends that I've had since I was little, so the fact that Jess and Cece have memories together from their entire lives is just so stinkin' cool. 

Happy Galentine's Day, my beautiful friends! I love you all.
