I admit I’m always looking for a reason to celebrate and National Make a Friend Day is a fine excuse. “Make new friends but keep the old. One is silver, the other is gold,” is all I remember of the childhood song from Girl Scouts but during February, it is the perfect instruction for a richer life.
Let’s Celebrate Black History Month all year
As a child I loved Negro History Week and when it became Black History Month, I especially looked forward to February to learn something new. Nowadays I try to celebrate every month since there’s so much to learn and so little time.
February is one of my favorite months and by March 1, I’m out of breath from all the activities and celebrations. From the Super Bowl to Black History, Valentine’s Day, Leap Day, Presidents Day, there’s something to keep us busy every day.
