February Holidays: Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day, and Leap Day

February may seem quiet after Christmas and New Year’s, but it’s not! There’s a month of festivities all over Texas and all you have to do to join the fun is CHOOSE YOUR FAVORITE QUALITY RV RESORT DESTINATION AND BOOK YOUR STAY. Here’s an interesting February fact – 2/3 of our favorite fun February holidays were all because of ancient Roman emperors!

Groundhog Day

No ancient Romans here, but according to the legends of German immigrants, if the groundhog emerges from his burrow on February 2 and sees his shadow, there will be another six weeks of winter. According to AccuWeather, spring is already here!

It’s going to be sunny with temps in the mid-50s to lower 70’s all over Texas in February. According to us, February 2 is the perfect day to watch Groundhog Day, a hilarious movie starring Bill Murray. He plays a TV weatherman who is sent to cover the annual story only to get caught in a time loop day after day. You can find Groundhog Day on Amazon Prime, You Tube, and others. EVERY QUALITY RV RESORT AND PARK has free Wi-Fi!

Valentine’s Day

There are many stories about the origins of this February holiday, but one that makes sense is this: Saint Valentine was a priest martyred by Roman Emperor Claudius II Gothicus centuries ago for defying orders and secretly marrying couples, thus sparing the husbands from war. For this reason, his feast day is associated with love.

And speaking of feasts, EVERY QUALITY RESORT AND PARK HAS PICNIC TABLES, BBQ GRILLS, AND FIRE PITS, so you can treat your sweetie to a Valentine feast right outside of your RV.

Origins of February Holidays – How to Leap into Fun on Leap Day

It takes the world 365.242 days to orbit the sun, but our calendars show only 365 days. So way back in 45 BC, Roman General & Dictator-for-Life Julius Caesar decreed that another day should be added to the calendar every four years to make up for it. And that’s why we have Leap Day. The good news is…people who were born on February 29 finally get to collect some birthday gifts. You know what would make a great birthday gift for your Leap Day Baby? Treat that person to a vacation at any Quality RV Resort or Park.

Have a fun February holiday, Camper!

Hope to see you really soon!
