February is a great time to celebrate the end of winter and all the fun holidays that come with it. We’re going to cover some of our favorite February holidays, and then I’ll show you how you can use them in your newsletter copy!
February 2, Groundhog Day
On this day, you can find out if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow and whether winter will end soon.
If he does not see his shadow, it means that there will be six more weeks of winter. If he does see it, however, springtime will come early!
In addition to the weather predictions, Groundhog Day is also a time for fun and reflection—so make some time for yourself on February 2nd!
February 14, Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is a great day to show your love to your family and friends. It’s also a good time to show your love to your community. And, it’s a good time to show yourself some love as well.
Valentine’s Day is an excellent opportunity for us all to reflect upon the most important relationships in our lives, those with our loved ones, whether romantic or not.”
February 18, Chinese New Year/Lunar New Year
Chinese New Year is the most important holiday in China. It’s celebrated over a 15-day period, and is often referred to as Spring Festival or Lunar New Year. During this time, family members gather together in celebration. The main activities are gift giving and drinking special tea called “gung hay fat choy” (literally meaning “Congratulations on your prosperity”).
There are also traditional foods eaten during Chinese New Year celebrations such as dumplings, noodles and sweets made from glutinous rice flour rolled into balls with bean paste inside or wrapped around sugary fillings like mung beans paste or red bean paste. You may want to include some of these traditional dishes in your newsletter recipes section!
February 19, National Love Your Pet Day
This day is a great opportunity to show your pet how much you love them by giving them lots of hugs and kisses—and maybe even some treats!
Of course, it’s not just about the gift of affection. Pets add years to our lives by providing companionship and joy every day. That’s why it’s important to choose a pet that fits into your lifestyle—not just today, but in 10 years or 20! The right fit will make all the difference when it comes to enjoying life with someone who cares deeply about you. If you know someone looking for a new four-legged friend, consider sharing this article with them so they can learn more about choosing the right kind of pet for their family.”
February 20, Presidents’ Day and Random Acts of Kindness Week
- Presidents’ Day: This is a holiday that celebrates all of the presidents who have been in office. We can think of it as a day to celebrate all the hard work they’ve done, and say thanks to them for serving our country.
- Random Acts of Kindness Week: This is a week where we try to do kind things for others without expecting anything in return. We should also focus on showing love to ourselves by doing nice things for ourselves as well!
February 28, Leap Year!
February 28 is Leap Day and it comes around every four years! It’s called Leap Year because of how the calendar system works – there are 365 days in a year, but every four years we add an extra day to February 29th. This was first introduced in 1582 by Pope Gregory XIII as part of his reforms to the Gregorian calendar, which replaced the Julian calendar which had been used for over 800 years.
The leap year is named after Lupercus, the Roman god of agriculture, who was believed to be born on February 22nd. The Romans believed that Lupercus gave fertility to livestock and crops during this time of year.
This might mean we’re all going to have nine lives this month!
