Wave All Your Fingers at Your Neighbor Day
- The perfect opportunity to greet your neighbor with a big wave. But, to show your respect and appreciation on this very important day, you must wave with all of your fingers! Without a doubt, this day was created to put a smile on your face, and upon your neighbors. Its intent is to be friendly and create better relations. You should also use the term Neighbor loosely. Go out and greet everyone today with a big five fingers wave.

Send a Card to a Friend Day
- A great chance to get in touch with a friend. We all lead busy lives. It is easy to let friendship or two lapses, as we try to shuffle kids to and from events. It is hard to stay in touch when workload demands eat up countless hours. Today is the perfect chance to send a card to a friend. A paper card, or an Ecard, is just fine. You may likely find an Ecard is quicker and easier. And, you will save on postage, too.

Charles Dicken's Birthday (1812)
- English social critic and novelist, born at Portsmouth, England on February 7, 1812. Among his most successful books: Oliver Twist, The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club, A Tale of Two Cities, David Copperfield and A Christmas Carol.

National Fettuccine Alfredo Day
- Fettuccine Alfredo originated during the 1920s in Rome at a restaurant called Alfredo all' Augsteo. It was popularized among U.S. tourists by restaurant owner Alfredo di Lelio. Though the name Fettucine alfredo stuck with Americans, it is unheard of in Italy. Italians most commonly refer to this dish as pasta al burro (with butter) in southern Italy and pasta in Bianco (in white) in northern Italy.

Ballet Day (1827)
- Renowned French danseuse Mme Francisquy Hutin introduced ballet to the United States on February 7, 1827, with a performance of The Deserter, staged at the Bowery Theater, New York, NY. A minor scandal erupted when the ladies in the lower boxes left the theater upon viewing the light and scanty attire of Mme Hutin and her troupe.
