Rashida Jones shared a sweet reunion photo with her Parks and Recreation co-workers Amy Poehler, Aubrey Plaza, and Kathryn Hahn on Valentine's Day. The only lady missing from the photo was Retta.
In an early Parks and Recreation episode, Poehler's character Leslie Knope invites her gal pals out for a delicious meal and presents them with gifts and praise. It's great to see this custom still going strong thirteen years after the episode was broadcast:
This Galentine's Day is even more special because 2023 is the first year the Merriam-Webster dictionary recognizes the holiday. That's right, Galentine's Day is officially recognized back in September 2022.
Here is how Leslie Knope of Parks and Recreation describes the wholesome day that is February 13th – Galentine's Day: for the uninitiated (and per its dictionary entry).
Parks and Recreation's ladies have certainly come a long way since capturing our hearts with their seven-season run, Aubrey Plaza has recently killed it on White Lotus, Rashida Jones has starred in an Apple TV adaptation of On the Rocks, and Amy Poehler has been traveling with Tina Fey for a national comedy tour.
Poehler and his company were certainly instrumental in promoting the holiday, which is now celebrated throughout the world, including by fellow Hollywood superstar Brie Larson.
