The most festive month of the year

by Jessie K on February 14, 2013

Were it not for the seasonal crafting craziness over at June’s Montessori, I don’t think I’d ever been fully conscious of just how festive February is. There are more holidays this month than just about any other.

First up, we had Groundhog Day (February 2):

Then we celebrated Chinese New Year (February 10):

Next up, Mardi Gras (Feb. 12):

And finally, the creme de la creme of February festivities, Valentine’s Day:

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!

(I wonder if her class will craft anything for President’s Day?)
