February being the shortist month, oddly has a lot going on. I guess being a cold month, it can’t hurt to have something to get the blood going. There really is a lot to choose from. February is Grapefruit Month, as well as Library Lover’s Month, Snack Food Month, Hot Breakfast Month, Children’s Dental Health Month, Cherry Month, Black History Month, Bird Feeding Month, Heart Month and Weddings Month. So whatever makes you happy, enjoy! And remember, it’s a short month, so your already running short on time — spring is right around the corner.
