  1. wow! I'm the first and it's my birthday tomorrow on Candlemas Day. I knew about candlemas but not that it was hedgehog day! this is a bit of a coincidence because my husband used to call me a hedgehog - my hair was short and stuck up a bit and he also said I have the nose of one!! That's ok, I like them :)

  2. LOL I love looking at the observances and days...some are too funny.
    Of course my favorite is...
    National Cream Filled Chocolates Day! YUMMO!

  3. My birthday is the 26th and I didn't know all of these:
    Tell a Fairy Tale Day
    National Pistachio Day
    Levi Strauss Day
    International Sword Swallowers Day
    Carnival Day

    so cool!

  4. Mine isn't on your list, but my fav day in feb is the 18th as it's my anniversary {i'm not married but like to remember how long i've put up with the miserable bugger LOL only kidding, i love him to bits.. will be 6 years this year)
    Thanks for the chance to win your yummy candy!

  5. I'm a huge fan of Mardi Gras. I just think the colors are amazing and parades and masks are always fun. and of course I love valentine's day.

    My favorite is Feb 8th, my mother will be 89 yrs old that day... she is awesome! Early Jan she fell and broke her hip, has undergone surgery and is recovering like the trooper that she is! I LOVE your blog... you are so very generous! thank you!

  7. February 3

    my sister's Birthday!!!!!!


  8. Feb. 3rd! My husband's and Elmo's Birthday.

  9. I thought it would be hard to choose, but it turned out to be a 'no brainer'. February 27th No Brainer Day! lol

  10. thats easy! Valentines Day..its is a fun one for use...always a surprise! great list! ty cher

  11. February is a busy month for our family. It is my husband's birthday, our anniversary, and our daughter's birthday on Leap Day! Top all that off with Valentine's Day and that's alot of celebrating.
    I see from your list that my husband's birthday is also "do it my way" day. Should I tell him....
    or not!
    I love all of our special February days and will eat chocolate for all!

  12. Well, Valentine's day is special, but Feb. 16 is my husband's birthday and Feb. 19 is my daughter's birthday, so that trumps the rest!

  13. Happy February! The 16th will be my dad's 88th birthday! I love that so many of the days this month have a candy connection! The 7th Send a Card to a Friend Day is the perfect day for me to get in touch with the people who have been my support team throughout my cancer treatment. I'll be a little more than halfway through radiation by then! Anne, yourmainestamper

  14. Valentine's Day is my 50th birthday...but I love Hershey's kisses so I am going to choose two and say Feb. 9th also, Hershey's chocolate day!

  15. Wow, what a list!!! But my favorite is Valentine's Day. Thanks for the chance to win.

  16. I like the 7th, send a card to a friend day...which I will be doing for sure to let them know how much they are appreciated.

    The 8th is my b-day, and also National Molasses Bar day, not sure what that is, but sure sounds interesting.

    I'd have to say the 25th with Let's All Eat Right and National Chocolate Covered Peanut Day, sounds the best!!!

  17. The 27th "No Brainer Day" sounds real good. LOL! But my favorite is the 14th because it's my anniversary.

  18. Well, I thought I knew what I would pick until I read the list. A couple I'm not even sure what it is. I did see a bit of a chocolate theme, didn't you? So I'll go with any of the chocolate-themed days.

  19. I love knowing that Feb 3rd is Carrot Cake Day.... just may have to head out to a local eatery and get a slice for a treat! It's one of my favorites and I haven't had any in ages.
    Thanks for the chance at the great blog candy too!

  20. February 23, National Banana bread day!
    Love it!

  29. I didn't know there were so many I think the 20th sounds like a good day, love your pet, and clam Chowder... what could be better... unless your pet was a clam;)

  30. I have to pick International Friendship day as my favorite because how could this not be something to celebrate??!

  31. I always look forward to your first of the month posts - such fun!
    Our family has 5 birthdays in Feb - we celebrate all month long!
    My husband's birthday is the 26th - Sword Swallowing Day...lol

  32. Gotta be groundhog day for sure! Who in the world ever thought that one up? And we still observe it. Lostgame at pacbell dot net

  33. Funny how Let's All Eat Right Day and National Chocolate Covered Peanut Day both fall on the day! :D Also funny how there's a special day for toothache... haha
    It's hard to pick a favorite out of these, but I guess mine would have to be the National Frozen Yogurt day :) So tasty!

  34. Valentine's day and my dad's birthday

  35. Hi Roni

    My favorite? Valentine's day of course. This day is special for my husband and me. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to win!

  36. My favorite off your list is Feb 17 with random acts of kindness day... but my personal favorite is Feb 11... The anniversary of my husband and my engagement and also the anniversary of the first time we ever held hands... High school sweethearts! Thanks!

  37. I like Love Your Pet Day but can't really go pass National Chocolate Mint Day. Just love those chocolate mints.

  38. I can't pick one...so here's two.

    the 9th...Hershey Day because I love Hershey Kisses, Hershey, Pa and going to see the Hershey Bears Hockey Team.

    the 27th...My Way Day. Perfect for me and my Aries daughter. lol! We like things "are way" But we ask nicely.

  39. These are too funny. I've never heard of such weird things. I love "do a grouch a favor" day. I just found your blog through Tim Holtz's site. It's great!

  40. I would have to say Feb. 2 Groundhog day, since it is also my Birthday! Hope I win!

  41. Ha ha...I have to pick Week 2, because there are 3 food related special days...and I LOVE food!! National Pickle day....too fun!

  42. Well, of COURSE I love Valentine's Day, but WOW, National Chili Day sounds YUMMY, and hedgehog day sounds TOO fun as does National PIstachio Day...I could go for BOTH of those...lol!

  43. And happy February to you, too!!! "Make A Friend" Day! :-) I LOVE that one! Thank you very much for the giveaway!


  44. I would like to say Hedgehog day because I like hedgehogs but it really is Valentines Day.

  45. read in the bathtub is on the same day as Hersey's chocolate day what a better day and its today. to bad I have to work the afternoon shift.

  46. There were soooo many great ones, but I have to pick my son's birthday! and then followed by my husbands birthday... I would say runners up would be National Cream filled Chocolates Day and Chocolate Souffle Day.... Lipsmackin goodness!

  47. well.. its my daughters 18th Birthday on 15th Feb so thats the most important one, followed of course by Love Day ... but I think cream filled Chocolates day might become a weekly holiday I need to observe LOL Caroline x

  48. i WOULD so LOVE to win this giveaway because I have seen these gals products online but never in my local stores. I would LOVE to give them a try!!

  49. Well, of course my fav holiday in Feb is the 14th Valentines Day. This yr i'm just happy that this is the first time my scrubby will be home on that day.

  50. Well Groundhog day is very special to me now because being a Canadian I actually went to Pauxetawny and saw the Groundhog they use for Groundhog day. Now I can say, been there done that. tee hee.

  51. I think its too funny that the 9th is Hershey's Chocolate day AND TOOTHACHE day! wonder why that is??

  52. My youngest brother's birthday is Feb. 17th so I must love that one but I think National Banana Bread Day is pretty cool. I think I'll make another batch on the 23rd.

  53. Well, they are really my fav's, but i like the traditional ground Hog day, because this year is suppose to be a early spring...yAY FOR THAT.

  54. I like Car key & small change day. You never know when they can be a life saver.
