February 2 is a big day around the US. Not only is it Superbowl weekend, but it's also Groundhog day. But what some people don't know is that February 2 is a very special day for one other reason as well. It marks the halfway point between the Winter Solstice (first day of winter) and the Spring Equinox (first day of spring.) On this day, winter is officially half over!! For thousands of years, it has been celebrated with festivals all over the Northern Hemisphere. Lighting Fires and drumming to wake up the earth are common practices. So this February 2. light a candle, do a little drumming or dancing and celebrate the coming arrival of spring!! Having something to celebrate is always a good thing. :)
