February Holidays

Valentines Day Cupcake

When I think of all the February Holidays, or February in general, I think of Valentine's Day, a day set aside, where you can express your LOVE to your spouse, or your significant other, your family members and kids, and even your friends with a card, gift, or flowers.  It's a great day to get engaged, or married, and many people use the holiday as an excuse to take a mini-vacation and reconnect!

Below you will find our listing of February Holidays and Observances, that fall in the month of February.  

NOTE:

  1. A page on each holiday will be coming soon and linked below.
  2. If a date is a movable holiday, that is different every year, we'll include the year as well as the date rule below. Otherwise, the holiday falls on the same date each year.
  3. We are in the process of starting to update to 2015 dates, and will list them here as sponsors update their websites.
  4. If we have made an error, have any incorrect dates, or have left off any Holidays, Observances, or Awareness Days etc, please let us know! Contact Us!
