February is Full of Fun

Valentines Day is February 14th, is but one in a month of other fun holidays.

February Holidays include the winter holidays of Presidents Day or Washington and Lincoln Days, Mardi Gras (this one moves around with the Lenten Season Dates and Easter), and some others listed below. Ohio also celebrates John Glenn Day for our astronaut, the last surviving member of the Mercury Seven class of NASA astronauts from the 1950s.

We know that February is also Black History Month, commemorating the history of Africans and African Americans and descendant immigrants that have contributed to the Unites States in lasting ways.

Holiday Coloring Books Are Healthy Fun

In 2015, the health and wellness community discovered that coloring books and coloring pages can be ideal even for adults! -- This is because the act of coloring is relaxing for many people. Even business executives are finding peace and fun in coloring.

Many kids still love to color these days. Sometimes our children and their young friends like to have an entire coloring book to hold as they color the pictures and designs.

The book keeps the pictures all together in one place to avoid the mess of papers scattered everywhere. This makes cleanup easier on busy holidays.

At the same time, a colored picture can be torn easily from the book and posted on the family refrigerator for all to see, or even mailed as a Valentine's Day card. That is one card to be remembered!

But what shall we do for a ring?"

      Hi, I like this kind of facts that you deliver, very nice with something for the children aswell, or maybe the adults should color them :-), might be good to let go of some stress.

      That´s a new hub-article, "Paint your stress away" :-)

      That is a splendid idea for a Hub! If you write it, I will read it. Perhaps several could write such a hub.

      I like to color once in a while, myself. :)
