**February Community Themes**

February Celebration!
Each month, we will celebrate some of the weirdest and wackiest holidays of the month! 4-5 Real holidays will be posted, and the week of each particular holiday, we will celebrate by participating in special holiday activities! If you participate in at least 3 of the 5 holiday activities, you will receive a Commemorative Celebrations Card Worth 3. Plus, your Gems Group will receive 100 points! Activities close after a week, so participate while you can!

February 2 - Groundhog Day Do you prefer the winter or the spring?
February 14 - Valentine's Day What are your plans?
February 16 - President's Day Who is the sexiest President of the United States thus far?
February (ALL OF)- Black History Month What comes to mind when you hear about it?

Please make sure that you tag all your February celebration posts with the February celebration tag so that they are not missed.
