USA, what’s up in FEBRUARY 2017?
On February 2 is Groundhog Day: marmot Phil will predict how long the winter will be.
Super Bowl: Sunday, 5th of February. The NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS meet the ATLANTA FALCONS in the NRG stadium in Houston, Texas.
On Feb 12 is the birthday of Abraham Lincoln, who was born in 1809 and killed in 1865.
Feb 14 is Valentine’s Day.
This year on Feb 20 is President’s Day (always on the 3rd Monday in February). Officially this day is called “Washington’s Birthday” in Section 6103(a) of title 5 of the United States Code, which is the law regulating official federal holidays for government workers. Private companies often do not pass on this holiday to their employees (not surprising if you know corporate America, isn’t it?).However, watch out for President’s Day Sale… (in America, there’s always a reason to have a sale going on).
OSCAR night on Feb 26 !
Feb 28 is Fat Tuesday, also known as “Mardi Gras”.
2016 was a Leap Year (meaning there was a 29th day in February), and so,… 2017 is not.
Also, February is American Heart Month, Black History Month, National Cherry Month, National Grapefruit Month, and National Wedding Month (whatever that means).
