For those of you who know me, you know that February is a month I usually become more reflective about life... Valentine's day? hm... My Birthday? Maybe...
What does the month of February is about?
Well it might be a surprise for some but no, February is not just about Love!
There is a lot more to the shortest month of the year... (though Love still sticks around of course 😉)
February comes from Februa (Latin), which means “to cleanse.” This particular month was named after the Roman Februalia, a month-long festival of purification and atonement that took place this time of year.
Some interesting dates include:
✨February 2: #groundhogday—the traditional day where we find out whether winter will last six more weeks or leave early (fingers crossed!)
✨February 12: Abraham Lincoln’s Birthday.
✨February 14 (we all know this one 😉)
✨February 15 is National Flag of Canada Day!
✨February 21: Presidents’ Day, a federal holiday also known as Washington’s Birthday that is celebrated on the third Monday in February. (George Washington’s actual birthday is February 22.. interestingly.. or not😄)
✨ February 23: my birthday... Yes ok...I am not very objective when it comes to February...what can I say, it's the month of clarity, purification, and love...always love 🤗
