FebruaryIce Cream For Breakfast Day
- Once upon a time there was a little girl named Ruth and a little boy named Joe. Ruth and Joe grew up in the back of beyond in New York state where it was very very cold. Every winter between New Year's Eve and Passover, life in up-state New York got extremely boring, so their parents invented a holiday to brighten up the dreary days of winter. It was called Ice Cream For Breakfast Day. This was a wonderful holiday for children and parents alike because to celebrate you had to eat ice cream for breakfast on the first Saturday in February.

National Chocolate Fondue Day
- Remember this special food holiday by getting out that fondue pot you have stored in the closet, heat it up and melt up that special chocolate sauce! Call up all your friends and family and get ready for a sweet dipping good time!

Dump Your Significant Jerk Day
- It’s time to take out the garbage and get rid of that “jerk” boyfriend or girlfriend. This is a chance for all you under-appreciated boyfriends and girlfriends to take out the trash, get rid of that jerk, and find a special some one to share your V-day with!

Disaster Day
- Over the past several years, think about the natural disasters that have taken place in your area, in your state, in your country, and around the world. What do you think has been the greatest natural disaster and why?

Hank Aaron's Birthday
- Born February 5, 1934, Mobile, Alabama. Nicknamed "Hammer", "Hammerin' Hank", and "Bad Henry", is a retired American baseball player whose Major League Baseball (MLB) career spanned the years 1954 through 1976. Aaron is widely considered one of the greatest baseball players of all time.

Move Hollywood and Broadway to Lebanon, PA Day
- There’s lots of room, friendly folks and Amish farms. Lebanon is a haven for residents and tourists to serenely indulge in the city’s world-famous bologna and the Wertz family homemade candies.

Peter Pan Day
- Movie released in 1953 - A mischievous boy who can fly and magically refuses to grow up, Peter Pan spends his never-ending childhood adventuring on the small island of Neverland as the leader of his gang the Lost Boys, interacting with mermaids, Indians, fairies, pirates, and (from time to time) meeting ordinary children from the world outside.

Sale of the first Wiffle Ball
- Their first sale was to Three Judges Restaurant, a diner just down the street from the factory. This unlikely outlet sold the Wiffle ball from its front window at the 1953 price of 49 cents. A humble start for sure, but one that led to orders from local sporting goods stores.

National Weather Persons Day
- honors weathermen, and woman who work hard to accurately predict the often fickle weather. Despite major technological advances and supercomputers, forecasting the weather is still a tricky, and ever changing business. According to the Air Force News, Weatherman's Day "commemorates the birth of John Jeffries, one of America's first weathermen". Jeffries was born on Feb 5, 1744. He kept weather records from 1774 to 1816.

Thank a Mailman Day
- This is your chance to say thanks to the guy, or gal, who delivers your mail. After all, they are there six days a week. The reliable postal worker is always there doing their job, regardless of the weather. They are a hardy lot. You'll find some mail carriers on walking routes, wearing shorts in all but the coldest of winter days.

World Nutella Day
- Nutella is more than just a “chocolaty hazelnut spread,” it is a way of life. From childhood memories to oozing hot crepes, from breakfasts on vacation to free-spooning sessions on the couch, Nutella is prominent in the memories of many children and grown-up children in the world. In 2007 we gave Nutella its own holiday, and this year we’re continuing the tradition.
