No matter how you plan to celebrate this year, we're here to help with these short, funny and incredibly sweet Galentine's Day captions.

If you're one of the few who's never heard of the holiday, let us explain.

In a 2010 episode of the TV show "Parks and Recreation," Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) introduces her coworker to what she says is "the best day of the year," aka Galentine's Day.

"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," Knope says.

Since then, Galentine's Day has taken on a life of its own and become a holiday in its own right, complete with gifts, greeting cards and fun festivities.

What could be better than a day dedicated to your girl squad? Absolutely nothing. Read on for cute Instagram caption ideas to help you drive that point home.
