FEBRUARY

Fun Facts and Dates 

  1. #FACT February is one of the most misspelled words in the English language. Yep, you read that right. February is one of the most misspelled words. What is the most misspelled word … well that honor goes to “Quarantine”. Most people thought it was spelled “Corn Teen”. Even the White House has misprinted the word “February” before in a press release.
  1. Thank you, Julius Caesar. February officially was added to the Roman Calendar in 713 BC. Julius Caesar remade the Roman Calendar and officially assigned the month 28 and 29 days.
  1. At one point it has only 23 days!  Can you image only 23 days to the month.
  1. February comes from the Latin word for “Februum”. Februum means purification and relates to a Roman Purification festival which was like an early Roman Spring Cleaning thing.
  1. No Full Moon: February is the only month where it is possible to go the entire time without having a full moon.
  1. Being Born on a Leap Year: Oh and if you are wondering there is about 1 in 1461 chance of being born on a leap year.
