Love is in the air this month everywhere under the sun
Did you know that in the Southern Hemisphere, February is a summer month equivalent to August for us northerners? Its name is from the Latin word ‘februum’ and means purification. So it’s fresh starts and action after a month of reflection and resolutions, right? Plus, love is in the air, so let’s get out in it!
February offers lots of glow on the go time starting with a check on the official opinions of our friends in the natural outdoors – Groundhog Day. Then gatherings for the game with friends and family cheering the Superbowl.
Not to be missed – Valentine’s Day – the universal prompt to show and share our love. Who do you plan to lavish love on this year?
At Moondust Cosmetics®, we’re known to encourage you to layer on our sun care, and now in this month that highlights the heart, we’re urging you to spread some love on yourself – first. Self-care energizes so you can radiate real love onto others and make them feel great too.
Craving a sunny escape?
Our fingertips found this Desert Festival of Jaisalmer in Rajasthan, India while perusing the worldwide celebrations in February. It has sun and fun with “Best moustache” pageants, turban-tying competitions, snake charmers, camel polo and folk dance performances. Visitors arrive for via SUV or on camelback and make this cultural gathering in the middle of the Thar Desert a big annual popular draw.
So much to love in February – community generated joy, opportunity to light up mid-winter nights or mid-summer, depending on your global location.
