So I was doing some “research” (I use that term VERY loosely to mean that I did one Google search) for a work activity to understand what some important February holidays / happenings are.  Through my exhaustive research (of which, my medical librarian mother would be so proud), I found the following:

  • American Heart Month
  • An Affair to Remember Month
  • Black History Month
  • Canned Food Month
  • Creative Romance Month
  • Great American Pie Month
  • National Cherry Month
  • National Children’s Dental Health Month
  • National Grapefruit Month
  • National Weddings Month

Can we discuss this list? I see a few things on this list that I am a little bit leery of.  “An Affair to Remember Month”?? What? …Don’t even get me started on “Creative Romance Month”.

When I went to do more “research” on “An Affair to Remember” month, I found this:

February is:

  • Creative Romance Month
  • National Wedding Month
  • An Affair to remember Month
  • February 4 – Protect me from arguments day
  • February 6 – Compliment Day
  • February 9 – Dump your signifient day
  • February 13 – Black Love Day
  • February 14 – St. Valentines Day!!!
  • February- movable holiday- World Marriage Day
  • Second Week of Feb. is International Flirting Week
  • Second Week of Feb. is Condom Week (13)
  • Third Week of Feb.is the Celebration of Love Week
  • Second Honey Moon Weekend

By the way, these are considered “Romantic Holidays”.  Does Hallmark make cards for this crap??

Please note that whomever made this list also can’t spell.  Signifient, really?

Ahh, the amazing things that one can find on the internet.  Do you think that “An Affair to Remember” Month and “Condom Week” are in the same list for a reason? Hmm…

I’ll leave the continuation of this research for another day.  For now, happy World Marriage Day! After all, it’s a moving holiday, so I proclaim that it’s today (even though I’m pretty sure that the moving of the holiday isn’t up to me :))!
