What is the significance of February holidays?

Historically, while the February calendar is defined by being the shortest month of the year, it used to be characterized by something quite different. Did you know historical names for February include Kale-monath (after cabbage) and Solmonath (mud month)? We might not have any cabbage holidays on our February calendar, but we have lots of other fantastic days to celebrate.

What are some memorable February holiday moments?

February might be the shortest month of the year, but it's chock-full of beloved national holidays from Groundhog Day (February 2) to Valentines Day (February 14).
