Today, in the US, we celebrate George Washington’s birthday. It’s also sometimes called President’s Day. When the US government started celebrating our first president’s birthday, it was the first time the government honored an American citizen! It’s very close to Abraham Lincoln’s birthday, which is February 12. It’s also Black History Month! There are just so many cool things that happen in February!
I think I also mentioned this before, but February is also the shortest month of the year, even in Leap Years! And yes, this year is a Leap Year. Normally this month is only 28 days long, but Leap Year adds a day making it 29 days long. I’ll have to find a cool thing to do this month so I can remember it forever!
Hmm…Got any ideas?
