A Few Fascinating February Facts

February often tempts us with glimpses of spring, like snowdrops and daffodils starting to appear, particularly on a day like today when the sun is shining.

February is named after the purification ritual Februa, which was an early Roman spring cleaning festival.

February is the shortest month of the year and the most commonly misspelt.

It was the last  month to be added to the Roman calendar.

The Welsh call February "y mis bach" which means "little month".

The birthstone for February is the amethyst and we have plenty of items here at Top Banana Antiques Mall featuring amethysts which make ideal gifts for people who are born in this month.
