From January to February

1 February, 2012

As the first month of the new year draws to a close and we hope it has gone well for you.   Now we are almost 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 considered it an ill-fortuned month which is why it is shorter than the others.   We return to the theme 0f curses, cursed items, ill-fortune and, perhaps, defense against such terrible things here in February.

As usual, suggestions, comments and ideas are welcome.

  1. I had no idea February was considered an ill-fortuned month. Seems to be working out that way for a few people I know, but I suppose that would be true of any month. Very interesting.
