February Lull

Thursday, February 21st, 2008 @ 10:51am

So February thus far has been rather uninteresting and uneventful, so I have had very little on which to post about. In the meantime, I thought it would be interesting to pull up some random February facts.

February is the shortest month of the year, but I’m sure you knew that? Legend has it that Augustus took a day from February to add it to his own month (August).

The confederate states were formed on February 4th, in Montgomery, Alabama.

February 29th is the only day of the year which women can traditionally propose to men.

2 full moons in the same month of February occur very rarely, as a lunar cycle is approx. 29.5 days. The second full moon is considered a “blue moon” (although, this is the case in any month two full moons occur).

Groundhog’s Day isn’t the only event to take place on February 2nd. Candlemas also occurs on February 2nd, which is typically observed by Roman Catholics.

Anyway, hopefully something should pick up soon and I might have more interesting things to blog about. In the meantime…
