Happy Groundhog Day/Happy Birthday

While today, February 2, is Groundhog Day, it was also my father’s birthday. Dad, who enjoyed sharing a birthday with this famous prognosticator, would have been 112 years old if he were alive today.

Happy BirthdayBut Dad was far from being the only member of my family to celebrate a February birthday on a date that was also known for other reasons. Both my sister and I have daughters who were born on Valentine’s Day.

Then there’s my mother, who will be 102 on February 22 and who shares a birthday with George Washington.

And I can’t forget my sister-in-law, born on February 25, who was fortunate enough to be born on a day that isn’t also recognized for another reason.

So here’s wishing a happy February birthday to Dad, Mom, Allison, Lisa, and Margaret.

And to everyone else, happy Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day, and President’s Day. For a short month, February sure has a lot going on.
