February FYI

  • Chinese New Year, the longest and most important celebration in the Chinese calendar begins on Feb. 19, 2015.

If you are born in the sheep years you are often artistic, charming, sensitive, and sweet. It is known as the most creative sign in the Chinese zodiac.

  • February's birthstone is the beautiful purple amethyst. This stone aids in the reduction of insomnia, arthritis, pain relief, and circulatory issues. Amethyst is considered the gemstone of meditation, peace, balance, courage, and inner strength.

  • Valentine's Day

"The most popular theory about Valentine's Day origin is that Emperor Claudius II didn't want Roman men to marry during wartime. Bishop Valentine went against his wishes and performed secret weddings. For this, Valentine was jailed and executed. While in jail he wrote a note to the jailor's daughter signing it 'from your Valentine'". --excerpt from
