About February Holidays

It’s mid-winter with plenty of cold and snowy weather. But, there are some sizzling February holidays to warm you up. We begin the month when a little groundhog emerges from his winter lair to predict how much winter remains. Then in mid-month love is in the air to warm our hearts. Valentine’s Day is followed the next day with the lesser-known, but still heart-warming Singles Awareness Day. You can readily fill your daily calendar with February National holidays and International Holidays, along with some really fun special days.

February Special Events

Mark your calendars for Sunday, February 5. The Superbowl is the most watched event in the U.S. Last year, over 101 million Americans watched it. Some people watch the game, while others the ads or the halftime show are the big attractions.
