    Shelma – I awoke this morning to find it was National Reading Day here in the U.S. and regretted not having known in advance to have a blog post to prepared prior to the event.

    So I decided to research some upcoming events for February and I thought some of these might be useful for the Facebook page and for anyone else that wants to promote them on their own pages. A lot of these are silly commercial promotional days/months in the U.S. I’d love to see what other lesser known international or regional events can be added to this list.

    Black History Month
    Canned Food Month
    Great American Pie Month
    National Cherry Month
    National Children’s Dental Health Month
    National Grapefruit Month

    Feb. 4th – Homemade Soup Day
    Feb. 7th – Opening ceremonies for the Olympics
    Feb. 10th – Umbrella Day
    Feb. 20th – Love your Pet Day
    Feb. 23rd – Tennis Day
    Feb. 24th – National Tortilla Chip Day
    Feb. 27th – Strawberry Day and also Chili Day
    Feb. 28th – Floral Design Day (and National Sleeping in Public Day)
