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.
