What does February have in store for us? To be honest, a LOT! If you are a business or an influencer in the food industry, there are numerous food-related holidays to celebrate with your audience, such as National Pizza Day and National Homemade Soup Day. And if you care about internet safety, there’s Safer Internet Day and National Clean Out Your Computer Day. For libraries, authors and readers there is Library Lovers’ Day. For people enjoying a drink now and then, there is National Margarita Day. We also observe important awareness days such as World Cancer Day and International Day of Women and Girls in Science . For musicians, there’s World Ukulele Day. In addition to all the holidays mentioned, there is also Valentine’s Day on February 14. In other words, a lot to celebrate!
