February may not be one of the more popular months on the calendar, but it is undeniably one of the quirkiest. For starters, there’s that whole leap year thing. Then there’s the weird spelling of the word itself, with an extra “r” that few people actually pronounce.
Of course, February has more going for it than those idiosyncrasies. Most notably, it features one of the biggest holidays of the whole year, Valentine’s Day. February has also long been designated as Black History Month. Finally, the month includes the only holiday starring a weather forecasting marmot, Groundhog Day.
Speaking of weather, it can be pretty miserable in February. But if you’re the glass-half-full type, consider that the days are getting longer and Spring is on the horizon. If you’re looking for ways to spread some cheer and optimism – or just a few laughs – here are some ways to wish your friends and loved ones a Happy February.
