February Facts

February 3, 2013

February is the second and shortest month of the year that I chose to write about since we have just entered February. This month holds some historical events and occasions that people today still remember and celebrate those events. To start off with, this month has twenty eight days, but every four years it has twenty nine days which is called a leap day. Groundhog Day is an American occasion celebrated on February 2. Valentine’s Day is celebrated on the 14th where loved ones spend the day together.  George Washington, the 1st president of the United States, was born on the 22nd and was elected in February as well. Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States, was born on the 12th. Ronald Reagan, the 40th president of the United States, was born on the 6th. February 5 holds the tragedy of Pompeii, Italy’s earthquake when the whole city was buried underground. Malcolm X, an African-American Muslim minister and human rights activist and one of the important names in the history, passed away on the 21st. Princess Elizabeth became Queen Elizabeth II on the 6th, currently the queen of England. The Gulf War came to an end on the 28th of this month.  Many inventions have occurred in February such as; the first Ferrari car was invented in 1898, which is one of the most expensive cars, and one’s dream to own one. Steve Jobs co-founded the Apple computers that are one of the best computers of all time, and is still being used by millions today. YouTube, the number one video browsing website, was first launched on February 15, 2005. Finally, Mark Zuckerberg founded Facebook, an international and the most popular social networking website, on the 4th of February, 2004. February is a short month but is loaded with historical events and inventions.
