The February sunshine steeps your boughs and tints the buds and swells the leaves within.

William C. Bryant

There is always in February some one day, at least, when one smells the yet distant, but surely coming, summer.

Gertrude Jekyll

“Even though February was the shortest month of the year, sometimes it seemed like the longest.”

― JD Robb

No one's ever achieved financial fitness with a January resolution that's abandoned by February. 

Suze Orman


February is the 2nd month of the year and also the shortest.  Every 3 years it has only 28 days, but 4th years like this one, it has 29 days.  And this year that extra day falls on a Saturday.  February has the biggest sporting event of the year, The Superbowl and the biggest party of the year Mardi Gras. Two of our most famous and revered Presidents were born in this month, Abraham Lincoln and George Washington.  It is the month of the groundhog, who forecasts the weather and of cupid, who foretells love.  It is known as the month of the heart and Heart Health Month.  The entire month is full of celebrations and recognition of contributions that African-Americans have made to America's history.  Every four years like this one, February is also the beginning in earnest for the race for President.  Iowa and New Hampshire respectively hold caucuses and a Primary this month.  There is a lot more to February than with some of those other months who have more days.  Hints of spring and false spring even have been known to make appearances, as well as snowstorms and freezing cold days.  By the end of the month we are much closer to spring, as February marks the end of meteorological winter.
