When Regular February Holidays Just Won’t Do

February is full of fun holidays that people love to celebrate around the United states and even around the world! What with Groundhog Day, Chinese New Year, Mardi Gras, Ash Wednesday, Valentines day, President’s day, even Purim, there are tons of things to celebrate!  
But what happens if you don’t like those February holidays and they give you the blues? Maybe you don’t have anyone to feast and make cool paper lanterns with, or you’re one of those “Forever alone” revelers on Valentines Day who’d rather not be reminded of your dateless existence thus far. Maybe giant parties in the Louisiana streets are a little too wild for you.

Whatever the thing might be that is stopping you from having something to celebrate this second month of the year, don’t give up! What better way to bring together college friends and roommates than bonding time over random days most people don’t know about? Grab a few friends or celebrate in solitude with some of these random and obscure holidays and observances!

Want a monthly observance to remind yourself of every day? Here’s a few in February:
  • AMD/Low Vision Awareness Month
  • American Heart Month
  • Dog Training Education Month
  • Exotic Vegetables and Star Fruit Month
  • International Boost Self-Esteem Month
  • Library Lovers Month
  • National Care About Your Indoor Air Month
  • National Mend A Broken Heart Month
  • Pull Your Sofa Off The Wall Month
  • Return Shopping Carts to the Supermarket Month

Not your thing? How about some daily fun instead:
