February Holidays and Observances - Page-A-Day

We check quite a few sites each month to gather the best observances and holidays to share with you. Here's the cream of the crop.

February is for Feelings!

February is chock full of feelings! 

  • International Flirting Week: If you haven't met that special someone, put your feelers and do some flirting starting on February 14th through the 20th.
  • International Friendship Week: Cupid may not be calling this year, but there's still an opportunity to connect with someone you care about starting on February 10th.
  • Random Acts of Kindness Week also starts on the 14th! Find a way to share the love and pass it forward through the 20th.
  • Love Your Pet Day: One of our ultimate favorites all year 'round falls on February 20th!

Some other exciting monthly observances in February 2015:

  • Library Lovers Month 
  • National Haiku Writing Month
  • National African American History Month
  • American Heart Month
  • International Boost Self-Esteem Month

And some weekly ones as well: 

  • Dump Your Significant Jerk Week - Get rid of the jerk you've been dating before Valentine's Day and then pamper yourself! (Feb 7 - 13)
  • Freelance Writers Appreciation Week - If you work with a freelance writer, give them a hug—or maybe some fabulous moisturizing lotion for those overworked typing fingers. (Feb 7 - 13th)
  • National Entrepreneurship Week - Spend this week developing that idea for a startup you've been sitting on. (Feb 20 - 27th)

And the daily observances that you may want to jot down:

  • Feb 7th: Super Bowl Sunday. Get the nachos, chips and dip and 5-foot long sandwiches ready and throw a party! Who are you rooting for today?
  • Feb 2: Groundhog Day and World Play Your Ukulele Day both fall on 2/2. Why not play your Ukulele in hopes of a short winter prediction from Punxsutawney Phil, the groundhog! 
  • Feb 5: National Nutella Day. Celebrate by putting Nutella in everything!
  • Feb 9: Fat Tuesday, or Mardi Gras, is a party you can't miss. Travel to New Orleans or Rio de Janeiro to celebrate Carnival! 
  • Feb 20: Let's all get together and give our furry friends a big squeeze on Love Your Pet Day. Share the love with our 365 Dogs Page-A-Day and 365 Cats Page-A-Day calendars.
  • Feb 23: National Dog Biscuit Day. Give that dog a bone for cryin' out loud! 
  • Feb 26: For Pete's Sake (Day), it's obvious what we're doing on National Bacon Day

Whatever you're celebrating or observing in February, mark it down in your Page-A-Day Calendar so you don't forget...
