February Fun

February is the shortest month in the year and sometimes the dreariest as spring is still weeks away. But, if you put your mind to it, it can be a month for a good time. National Groundhog Day is behind us and Valentine Day is just around the corner. The groundhog did not see his shadow and we will have an early spring and love will be in the air, at least through February 14.

But do you know there are a lot of other fun days to celebrate in February? For example, who knew February 4th is:
National Thank a Mailman Day
National Homemade Soup Day
National Create a Vacuum day
To celebrate, I will wave at my mailman, make a pot of soup for supper, and push my vacuum around.

We have George Washington and Abraham Lincoln to thank for being born in February. Our present line up of politicians running for President want to take Father George’s and Uncle Abe’s place in the annals of U.S. history. From the Iowa causes to Super Tuesday, there will be plenty of intrigue, entertainment, accusations, and speeches. As a political junkie, I’ve watched all the debates and have picked my candidate. Our absentee ballots have been mailed for our Super Tuesday vote here in Georgia. Now we get to sit back and watch it all unfold and, hopefully, celebrate when our candidate gets picked.

Think of how much you will accomplish this month if you take seriously the following:
·                                                                                February 11—National Make a Friend Day
·                                                                                February 14—National Organ Donor Day
·                                                                                February 17—National Random Acts of Kindness Day

Or for a more lighthearted approach, recognize these days:
·                                                                              February 6—National Lame Duck Day                                                                  

                                   February 11—National Don’t Cry Over Spilled Milk Day

·                                                                              February 16—National Do a Grouch a Favor Day

A lot of folks will be going to Mardi Gras for a super-sized party and folks born on February 29 will actually have a birthday this Leap Year.

Speaking of birthdays you can always celebrate mine on February 8. Isn’t February a great month?
