So February is perhaps the most random month.
It's the only month that is consistently mispronounced.
It's the only month with 28 days.
It's a month without any real holidays (c'mon Valentines day is so freaking made up - we celebrate love on the anniversary of a massacre? sure thing . . . Halmark, I'm on to you). I think that they moved the Superbowl to February just to give the month a boost.
I love the whole black-history angle, but it seems kind of cheap that they have one (real) ethnic history month and they use the shortest one.
And have you noticed that the movies in February are just about the worst all year? It's the longest possible time to the Oscars and several months until the summer blockbusters so we get the fine cinematic masterpieces like: Norbit, Hanibal XII (Teething Ring of Gore), Ghost Rider, The Astronaut Farmer, and Jim Carrey's latest comedy: The Number 23 (I think it's about how they make Dr. Pepper).
I vote that we sleep through February. We could celebrate Mexican history and take all of our siestas from the entire year in one month.
