February is loaded with holidays, some government sanctioned, some created to sell product or create a buzz of conversation. We can safely get behind American Heart Month, Black History Month and here in Ontario, Family Day and horrors…Ground Hog Day.
But those created for no purpose but your dollars, include National Cherry Month, National Grapefruit Month, International Frozen Yogurt Day and Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day. And what about Send a Card to a Friend Day and even International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day.
Super weird ones include Create a Vacuum Day, National Shower with a Friend Day, Kite Flying Day (in winter?) and National Gum Drop Day
Valentine’s Day started in Roman times, and the church started honouring saints of the same name. Then card and flower companies took it over and really commercialized it.
Here is the most important day on the calendar.
He will also keep you firm to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.(1 Corinthians 1:8, NIV)
