Goodbye Janus, Welcome Ill-fortuned February

1 February, 2016

We now step 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 February an ill-omened month which is why it is only twenty-eight days long (and we have extended to twenty-nine in this leap year).   For this month we return to the theme 0f curses, cursed items, ill-fortune and, perhaps, defenses against such terrible things.  As usual, suggestions, comments and ideas are welcome.
