Ahhhh….February. Four weeks of fun, known for love, presidents, and the Super Bowl. But what you may not know is that there are several “holidays” in February that are….um…not quite as familiar.
Try these on for size:
Feb 1: No Politics Day AND Spunkie Old Broads Day (which I thought was every day)
Feb 8: Kite Flying Day (yes, even in winter)
Feb 9: Toothache Day (odd that this isn’t closer to Halloween)
Feb 18: National Drink Wine Day
Feb 23: International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day (even has global support – impressive)
Feb 28: Public Sleeping Day
I also really enjoy this one, also on Feb 1st: Bubble Gum Day. Established back in 2006 by Ruth Spiro (writer, children’s book author, and bubble gum fanatic), it was created to give schools a chance to fundraise without selling things. Instead, kids are encouraged to bring money to school as a donation in exchange for the chance to chew gum in school.
And here’s another thing you may not know. For the month of February, we are giving away something as sweet as bubble gum.
We are giving away (2) Lift Tickets to Snowbird Ski Resort so that you can go skiing for a day with a friend! In addition to that, the winner will also receive a $100 gift card to be used up at the resort to be used for food, shopping, or even some time at the spa.
And here’s the best part: all you have to do to enter is leave us a review during the month of February. Easy peezy. Just write a review on Google, Facebook or Yelp and you will be entered to win (2) Lift Tickets + $100 Gift Card to Snowbird. Time to start tuning up those skis!
Who knows, maybe we will create our own holiday, just like Ruth Spiro. How about the “win-something-awesome-from-Stonehaven-Dental” holiday? (What – too long?)
Did you know that April is Oral, Head and Neck Cancer Awareness month? The Oral Cancer Foundation tells us that nearly 54,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral or oropharyngeal cancer this year. Of the people newly diagnosed with these cancers, only about 57% will live longer than five years. Often, this type of cancer […]read more »
