Fun Facts about February

Everybody loves an alliteration.

I found a website with lots of information about February. (I was not able to find any one answer as to why February has only 28 days. What reasons have you heard?)

Astrological Signs
Aquarius: January 20 - February 18
Pisces: February 19 - March 20


Flower (Who knew months had flowers?)

February 2004 had 5 Sundays! This is an occurrence that only happens every 28 years ... the next time it happens wont be until 2032.

There are a lot of Monthyly Observances so I picked a few that I thought were interesting.
Black History Month
AMD/Low Vision Awareness Month
Condom Month
Bake For Family Fun Month
Snack Food Month
Chocolate Month
Candy Month
Children's Dental Health Month

There were also several Weekly Observances (I picked One from each week)
The First Week in February is Women's Heart Week
The Second Week in February is Sexual Responsibility Week (National Condom Week)
The Third Week in February is Random Acts of Kindness Week
The Fourth Week in February is Eating Disorders Awareness Week (National)
