February Awareness Month
So often you see “Such-n-such Awareness Month” or “Something I Can’t Pronounce Month.” Some seem obvious (American Heart Month) and others (On-Hold Month) not so much. California Dried Plum Digestive Health Month (no, I’m not making this up) falls in the You’ve-got-to-be-kidding category.
The president can proclaim a national awareness month. For example…
I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim January 2013 as National Stalking Awareness Month.
And it seems almost anyone else can proclaim an awareness month, too. Here are some examples:
- Humorists Are Artists Month
- Frozen Food Month
- Umbrella Month
- Straw Hat Month
- Skyscraper Month
But, there are some awareness months we can really get behind. Here is a list of February Monthly Observances we love.
So, find something to celebrate this month. Happy February!
