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)January 24, 2014 at 9:01 am #8731
