Forward into February and looking back at January 2011

31 January, 2011

The first month of the new year draws to a close and we hope it has gone well for you.   As we move forward into February, which gets its name from Latin term februum, which means purification, via the purification ritual Februa performed at this time of year.  The Romans also considered it an ill-fortuned month which is why it is shorter than the others.  So the theme  for this February will again be curses, cursed items, ill-fortune and, perhaps, defense against such terrible things.

As usual, suggestions, comments and ideas are welcome.
