Today, Wednesday, February 19th, 2014, is National Chocolate Mint Day,Spunky Old Broads (SOB) Day(error*), Iwo Jima Day, International Tug-of-War Day, Single Tasking Day, and Copernicus Day. In Ancient Rome it was the seventh day of the Parentalia, and the Birthday of Minerva. In Melanesia it was the Feast of Pusiuraura (God of the Dart Game; Melanesia. It’s the Christian feast day of St. Conrad (patron against hernias). The Pisces zodiac sign begins, and the Goddess Month of Bridhe ends.

 

Tomorrow, Thursday, February 20th, 2014,will be National Cherry Pie Day, Love Your Pet Day, World Day of Social Justice, and Hoodie-Hoo Day ©. Muslim’s celebrate Promised Reformer Day, Christians celebrate the feast days of Jacinto Marto (patron of people ridiculed for their piety, prisoners, sick people), and St. Winnoc (patron of Exultation, millers; against whooping cough, drought). In ancient Rome it was the 8th day of Parentalia. Neopagans celebrate this as the Day of Tacita. (This is one of those Neopagan conversions, where Tacita, the goddess of Silence, who was Roman death goddess is now seen as a goddess of shutting up, and anti-harmful speech, and the day has shifted.) Also Neopagan in origin, this is the beginning of the Goddess Month of Moura (or Cerridwen), a renaming of months and aligning them with the zodiac or lunar cycles.)

*further checking reveals that SOB day was the first of February, but since it’s a monthly holiday as well, you can celebrate today anyway.
