The month of February has many landmark dates pivotal to United States history. Among them include birthdays of two of our most revered presidents – Abraham Lincoln on the 12th and George Washington on the 22nd.
We also have Presidents Day on the 21st, to sit back and honor such luminary greats as George W. Bush, and William Henry Harrison, who served all of four months before having the dubious honors of being the first president to die in office. The national day off from work can be commemorated in many ways, including going to Mount Rushmore, counting or watching Dead Presidents, making stupid jokes about “Colon Power” or going to Big Bear, which is what I did.
February also had Groundhog Day on the 2nd. February 3 was Chinese New Year. And a holiday as ridiculous as George Washington’s haircut, Valentine’s Day on the 14th.
And then, the granddaddy of them all, February 28 – the day www.ManoukAkopyan.com was officially launched for the betterment of Mankind.
Let’s just hope the day doesn’t get lost like February 29, and that you visit more than every four years while appreciating my Lincolnesque honesty.
