February has arrived! Yesterday, we observed Groundhog Day. The "official" groundhog saw his shadow, thus predicting six more weeks of winter weather. I don't know how much I believe in holidays like Groundhog Day, but some of the more "offbeat" holidays are rather amusing.
I did some research and found several interesting celebrations that are assigned to today (February 3):
- National Carrot Cake Day
- National Frozen Yogurt Day
- National Day the Music Died
- Constitution Day (Mexico)
February is also observed as a special month:
I've linked each of the days/months above to sites where you can find more information about each.
The Prompt: Choose one of the celebrations above or create a special holiday of your own and write a poem around your chosen special day.
Word Prompt: Special Day or Holiday
Suggested Form: Ode (one of my favorites!)
