Lin-Manuel Miranda Made an Amazing Galentine's Day Playlist

Lin-Manuel Miranda, the actor-singer-composer behind the Broadway smash "Hamilton", has dropped a new Spotify playlist on fans, just in time for Galentine's Day. Anne Wasserman, a second-year sociology student who used to watch the show said that Leslie Knope and her friends from "Parks and Recreation" had inspired her to celebrate the holiday. A day for women to unabashedly celebrate the wonderful ladies in their lives, Galentine's Day focuses on acceptance, love, and light.

Anyone who could not make it out to the event may donate online or in person at the shelter, 924 Cedar St. ("Oh, it's only the best day of the year!") It's the awesomely feminist counterpart to Valentine's Day.

So, we wanted to take a moment to celebrate friendship between the ladies. You encourage me to be my most authentic self, even if sometimes that means pouring gin into my beet juice or taking ballet class one day and learning knife skills the next.

Some people like to celebrate by going shopping together, or going out to dinner. So far his account has four fantastic public playlists, Add Yourself, Amaze and Astonish, Rise Up Eyes Up Wise Up, and his Galentine's Day playlist.

Galentine's Day is the holiday I was desperately waiting for my entire life. It's alive and well in the real world too, and it's a flawless opportunity to show your appreciation for the inspiring, smart, savvy women in your life.

Although Galentine's Day isn't that well established in popular culture, the internet is rife with articles detailing how one should celebrate Galentine's Day and BuzzFeed published an article about the reasons one should celebrate Galentine's.

Female friendships are as important as romantic relationships because one's closest friends will always be there to provide emotional support when needed.

On Twitter early Monday, the Oscar-nominated songwriter posted this: "I made you an early Galentine's Day mix". Or waffles, friends and work.
