Happy February and Happy Leap Year to all!
Although February is the shortest month of the year, to us it is cold, snowy and icy, which causes it to seem
to drag on forever as we anxiously await the arrival of Spring. But there’s more to it than just THAT..:
February is American Heart Month. Help raise awareness about heart disease and stroke. They say laughter
is good for the heart because it helps blood vessels function better, so have a good belly laugh and pump up
February 1st - National Freedom Day - Beginning in 1949 when Harry Truman signed a bill proclaiming the
holiday, reminding us of what our country stands for and to celebrate the freedoms we enjoy as U.S.
February 2nd - Groundhog Day, the day we hope Punxsutawney Phil doesn’t see his shadow as he
emerges from his hole, indicating Spring being just around the corner.
February 14th - Valentine's Day, a day when people show feelings of love, affection and friendship by
exchanging candy, gifts, cards and romantic dinners. NOTE: Guys, do NOT forget this day…TRUST ME!!
February 17th - “Random Acts of Kindness Day”. Take this opportunity to volunteer within your community,
organize a clothing, coat or shoe drive or, or just “Pay It Forward”.
February 20th is Love Your Pet Day, an opportunity for pet owners to lavish their fur babies with goodies and
treats! Take your pooch for a long walk or indulge your kitty with some catnip. And if you’ve been
considering adopting (rescuing) a pet, Love Your Pet Day is the perfect opportunity to visit your local animal
Regardless, STAY WARM MY FRIENDS! And keep thinking SPRING!!
