These Birds of Prey Galentines Will Let You Embrace the Fierce Goddess Within

The calendar year is absolutely filled with minor holidays that we often giggle about, but don't really take the time to celebrate. Take your teddy bear to work day, leave a zucchini on your neighbor's porch day and other officially unofficial holidays haven't found enough traction to be more than a silly Instagram or Twitter post. However, Galentine's Day is different. Celebrated on February 13th, the day before Valentine's Day, Galentine's Day celebrates women and their gal pals. You can follow in the footsteps of Parks and Rec Leslie Knope (the Galentine's Day founder) by having breakfast with your besties, or by exchanging small gifts of appreciation for your BFFs and handing out Galentines! If you're on the hunt for some empowering women warrior Galentines, check out our fierce Birds of Prey Galentines. They're sure to be a hit!
