February

I would like to believe you had a fantastic January and a loveable February has just began for you.

Let’s take a look at a few things about February:

February comes from the word ‘februa’ which means cleasing and this represents rituals undertaken before spring. It is the second month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian calendar. This is the shortest month and the only month with days fewer than 30. It has 28 days in a common year and 29 days in a leap year. This year is a leap year.

February’s Birthstone is Amethyst.

Amethyst is associated with stability, peace, balance, courage, inner strength and sincerity. Amethyst is found in Brazil, Uruguay and Zambia.

February flowers are Primrose and Violet. Primrose is symbolic of first love and Violet is symbolic of faithfulness and modesty.

Major events in February are international Mother Language Day, Abraham Lincoln’s Birthday, Independence Day in Saint Lucia and many more. Not forgetting the all important Valentine’s Day: February 14.

Nonetheless, why wait for a particular day to express your love and appreciation to someone when you can tell them each day how much they mean to you.

Enjoy February.
