February Festival 2018
February Festivals/फरवरी त्यौहार: Victorians are well aware that February is a month of significance for the state given the weather traditionally heats up and increases the bushfire risk, and the many years during which this has come true and led to significant impacts on Victorian communities.
February 7 2009 remains a date of remembrance to Victorian communities and emergency management personnel and six years on, many communities will mark it quietly and within their own communities(February Festivals). The yellow ribbon is a symbol that can be worn to remember and reflect on this date.
February is the second month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian calendars(February Festivals). It is the shortest month of the year as it is the only month to have a length of less than 30 days. The month has 28 days in common years or 29 days in leap years, with the quadrennial 29th day being called the “leap day.”
February is the third month of meteorological winter in the Northern Hemisphere. In the Southern Hemisphere, February is the last month of summer (the seasonal equivalent of August in the Northern Hemisphere, in meteorological reckoning)February Festivals.
India in February is all about enjoying the last of the cooler winter weather, at festivals in some of the best destinations across the country, including the Taj Mahal, Rajasthan, and Kerala. Here’s the best of what’s on in February in India (listed by date) February Festivals.
The shortest month of the year seems to have gone by in a flash(February Festivals). Why does February have only 28 days?
It’s the Romans’ fault. Our modern calendar is loosely based on their old, confusing one. Though records on the Roman calendar are sparse and sketchy, legend has it that Romulus, the first king of Rome, devised a 10-month lunar calendar that began at the spring equinox in March and ended with December(February Festivals). It is unclear whether there were any official months between December and March, but it’s likely they were left off because the wintertime wasn’t important for the harvest.
