It's finally February!
I’m so glad its February
Hello and welcome once again to the wonderful month of February. The second month takes its name from the Latin word Februa which was a purification festival in Ancient Rome. This month celebrates many holidays including Groundhog Day; The Day the Music Died, when Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper died in 1959; Valentines Day; Abraham Lincoln’s Birthday; Presidents Day; George Washington’s Birthday and the rarest of all the holidays, Leap Day.
February as a month also concerns itself with American Heart Health; An Affair to Remember; Black History; Canned Food; Creative Romance; Great American Pies; Cherries; Children’s Dental Health; Grapefruits, and Weddings. Who knew that the shortest month of the year contained so many holidays and concerns? Mostly I thought about Groundhog Day and Valentines Day. But after you have endured the long, cold months of winter you are concerned with whether or not the winter is going to last another 6 weeks. Plus my favorite color is red so any holiday that features it and has such a happy tone to it can easily win me over. And the chance that I may be the fortunate receiver of a beautiful bouquet of flowers is a plus, especially if they are red roses.
