I'm writing about the months and calendars — check out the 2021 Art Calendar.
As months go, February really sticks out.
First there’s that extra “R” near the front. Most people these days just ignore it. We’ve come to say “FEB-you-air-ee” instead of “FEB-bru-air-ee” (which now just sounds showy and weird anyway.) Name-wise, the days of February were the Roman time of purification when the Februa ritual was held. So there you are.
Second odd thing — the number of days. Only 28, except every fourth year when there are 29 days. Every other month in the year has 30 or 31.
Third oddity — that extra (leap) day every fourth year. The next one is 2024. And FYI, we have it because every (solar) calendar year is actually 365.2425 days long. We need that day to avoid seasonal drift. Accuracy counts.
Oddity #4: February has a curious mix of holidays. Really. I mean, who put this group together? — Chinese New Year, National Freedom Day, Groundhog Day, Valentine's Day, President's Day, Mardi Gras, Ash Wednesday, Black History Month, American Heart Month, Chocolate Lover's Month, National Bird Feeding Month, and National Dental Month. I'm guessing after a month of chocolate you need that dental visit.
And that gets to my February Question:
What flashes in your mind when you think of February?
Is Valentine’s Day? Is this a leap year? When’s Mardi Gras?
Funny. For me, I think that it’s time for my annual ritual of watching the movie Groundhog Day. I admit it. It's funny. And thoughtful. Plus I’m a sucker for movies about redemption. And for Andie MacDowell.
