February is the second month, and has 28 days, except on Leap Years when it has 29 (2000, 2004, 2008, and 2012).

It is named after the Roman god Februus.  The Latin root word februa means purification; and the Romans held their celebration of purification during the time of the month February. The Welsh originally called the second month of the year – “y mis bach” meaning the little month. During the time of Shakespeare it was called ‘Feverell’.

The flower of this month is a violet or sometimes a primrose and the birthstone is amethyst (which represents sincerity).

Three big holidays are held in February: Groundhog’s day (2nd), St. Valentine’s Day (14th) and President’s day (3rd Monday).
