Calendar Girls Blog Hop for February

Groundhog's Day is February 2th. Did you know they tell the weather by wither  or not they see their shadow. Punxsutawney Phil is in Pennsylvania.  He is one of several groundhogs to make predictions of when winter will end. He is also the best well known one.

     Hello and welcome to the February Calendar Girls Blog Hop. There are some holidays we all know about. Did you know there was a holiday dedicated to making friends? That is right, there is. It is February 11th. Will you be my friend? Oh! I am delighted! We will have a good time crafting together.

Presidents Day is on February 20th this year. It is always the Monday between Abraham Lincoln and George Washington"s birthdays. What is so special about them you ask? George Washington was the 1st President of our country and one of the Founding Fathers. His birthday is February 22nd. Abraham Lincoln was the 16th president. His birthday is February 12th. He felt all men were created equal. The War Between the states was fought during his presidency. The North won and all slaves were set free. Later the war became known as the Civil War. Because of these 2 presidents all people are free and have the right to vote today in the USA.
