Ideas for February Feast Days and Celebrations

Here are some of our favorite traditions for the Month of February. This is by no means an exhaustive list, rather it's my way of creating a resource that I plan to revisit each year for myself! I hope you can find it beneficial as well!

Month of the Holy Family
February 1st: St. Brigid

Our Feast Day Celebration from 2011 (Potato pancakes and St. Brigid cross craft)

Other Ideas:
February 2nd: Presentation of the Lord (Candlemas)

Our Candlemas celebration from 2011 (Candle decorating, crepes, bubbles and what today has to do with Groundhog's Day.)

Other Ideas:
  • Perform a Presentation puppet show with a free printable from Catholic Inspired
  • Make candle cookies: Catholic Cuisine (I plan on making these this year!)
  • Make candles
  • Take your candles to church to get them blessed
  • Decorate with turtle doves, you can find them in the wedding section at the Dollar Tree!
  • Pray the 4th Joyful Mystery: The Presentation
February 10th: St. Scholastica

Our Feast of St. Scholastic Celebration 2011 (stormy sea dessert and origami doves)

Other Ideas:
February 11th: Our Lady of Lourdes

Our Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes Celebration 2011 (craft)

Other Ideas:
February 14th: Valentine's Day

Other Ideas:
February 22nd: Chair of St. Peter

Other Ideas:
  • I crack up every time I see these poptart chairs for the Chair of St. Peter: Catholic Cuisine
  • Everything else: Shower of Roses (papal lapbook, book selections, games, an entire unit study...)

Be saints, it's worth it!
