It is popular online to describe things in terms of other things. Something may be the Ryan Gosling of pita chips or the Khloe Kardashian of bed bug eradication services or the Connecticut of Rhode Island. I decided to have some fun with events coming up in February by labeling them as comparisons to other events. Feel free to update your calendar accordingly.
February 1st, The Super Bowl: The Groundhog Day of professional football
February 2nd, Groundhog Day: The Super Bowl of large rodent exploitation
February 4th, Tu Bishvat: The Arbor Day of Jewish holidays I never heard of before I worked on this blog post
February 5th, nothing in particular: The Cinco de Mayo of a month other than Mayo
February 13th, Friday the 13th: The St. Patrick’s Day of superstition enabling
February 14th, Valentine’s Day: The tax deadline of romantic expression
February 16th, President’s Day: The Columbus Day of people who don’t even get their own holidays

By the way, if you couldn’t figure out the title, James Madison was the shortest U.S. president just as February is the shortest lunar month. Can you do better? Suggest other comparisons to describe February and February events in the comments below.
