Our February Edition of Staying Connected is all about ways to be kind. February is a month which celebrates the Random Acts of Kindness Day and Valentine's Day, so what better month to focus on kindness and love in these times!
Did you know that February is actually names after a spring cleaning festival! The word comes from the Latin word 'februum' which means purification and is named after an early Roman purification ritual, a.k.a a spring cleaning festival!
February is the only month where it is not possible to have a full-moon, due to it's shortness of days and it's flowers are Violet (Viola plants) & Primroses.
So as we head through a cold and wintery month, what does February bring with it?
Our theme of the month: Kindness
February, considering it's shortness of days, brings with it a vast array of celebrations including Pancake Day and Valentine's Day. But one celebration which really caught our eye this month was The Random Acts of Kindness Day, which is today, the 17th Feb.
When we think of February we already think of love, but in the current world circumstances, kindness can really go a long way, so what better theme to celebrate this month than being kind and not just to people we know but to everyone!
