Today is Oct. 13. That only means one thing.

Treat Yo Self 2016!!!

For Parks and Recreation fans, it's the day to splurge out on designer shoes. Or ridiculously expensive Batman cosplays.

But there's another reason Frog fans (who are simultaneously Parks and Rec fans) can celebrate -- Gary Patterson's weird serendipitous connection to the show.

Get this:

For those that may be unfamiliar, what is Galentine's Day?

"It’s only the best day of the year.”

In short, it's the Parks and Rec holiday that celebrates ladies and lady friends, celebrated every year on the day before Valentine’s Day. And it also happens to be Patterson’s birthday.

And, of course, Patterson went to “Pawnee” Heights for high school — Pawnee being the town where Parks and Rec is set.

So there you have it, Frog Fans. Go on and treat yo self to some good waffles and all the bacon and eggs you have.
