Holidays in February (2015 calendar dates)

So yesterday, I finally got to write my post about Groundhog’s day (Go me!). And today, I was thinking about all of the holidays in February. So, thanks to Holiday Insights (at http://www.holidayinsights.com/moreholidays/february.htm), I was able to find all of the holidays of the month. Some I have heard of, others not some much, and apparently, February is the month of a couple of different things other than Black History Month. In is also

  • American Heart Month
  • Canned Food Month
  • National Children’s Dental Health Month
  • Great American Pie Month (this just spoke to the Supernatural fan and Dean girl inside of me)

among many others.

Now the daily holidays are below, and are followed as, including the ones that have already passed, of 2015:

  1. National Freedom Day
