Today we celebrate:

National Shower With a Friend Day - I have heard that February in the northern hemisphere is not a good month for a lot of people. It’s cold, it’s dark, and it has Valentine’s Day in it which is tough if you’re not in a relationship so it’s also lonely. Well, here is apparently a solution for helping you get through and make it to March. Take a shower with a friend. Make it a warm shower and make it a really good friend, otherwise it could go badly.

Super Bowl 51 – For all the football fans out there, this is the biggest day of the year.  For a while now, the NFL people have been attempting to make this a national holiday and turn it into a three day weekend. No success so far with that. I hope that whichever team you are rooting for, wins. This day should be called Super Bowl LI because L is the Roman Numeral for 50 and I is the Roman Numeral for 1 and that is traditionally how the Super Bowls are numbered. But two years the powers that be decided that they wouldn’t use Roman Numerals anymore.

National Weatherperson's Day – This day recognizes the contributions of meteorologists all over the country, along with volunteer storm spotters and observers, who work hard to make sure we are not caught unawares when bad weather strikes. My favorite weatherpeople for the Hudson Valley in New York are Alex and Bill at . I don't know how they do it but they are more accurate than any weatherpeople on the news that I've ever seen.

Western Monarch Day – Established by the California state legislature in 2004, this day celebrates the return of the Monarch butterfly to the central coast of California where they spend the winter.

World Nutella Day – This is a day to have some of this delicious chocolate and hazelnut spread, you can put this stuff on almost anything and it will taste good.
National Chocolate Fondue Day – Almost everyone loves chocolate covered food of all kinds. I know this because I conducted a poll in my house. Get out that fondue pot you know you've got stashed somewhere and make some fondue to dip your food in today.

Dump Your Significant Jerk Day – This day is traditionally the first day of Dump Your Significant Jerk Week which is always the week before Valentine's Day. So if you have a jerk of a girlfriend or boyfriend, this is your chance to get rid of them, end that stressful, unhappy relationship and save yourself some money since you now won't have to buy them a gift for Valentine's Day. If you're a little wishy-washy about it, you do have a whole week to use if you need it. But I think you'd be better off getting it over with today and spending that week finding someone else who will appreciate you.
