(Inside Manila) It’s amazing how fast January can become a stranger as the month of February now comes in, with holidays and observances (and a long weekend) such as the Chinese New Year on the 16th and the EDSA People Power Revolution Anniversary on the 25th.

According to the Official Gazette of the Republic of the Philippines, the country will observe February as a Philippine Heart Month, Air Transportation Safety Month, Civil Registration Month, National Arts Month, National Down Syndrome Consciousness Month, National Dental Health Month, and National Health Insurance Month.

We’ll also celebrate the Taytay Hamaka Festival in Rizal, The Tinagba Festival in Camarines Sur, International Bamboo Organ Festival in Las Piñas, Baguio Flower Festival in Baguio City, Ollalion Festival in Kalinga, Babaylanes Festival in Negros Occidental, Kalilangan Festival in South Cotabato, and the Kaamulan Festival in Bukidnon. The world, on the other hand, will celebrate Valentines Day on the 14th, and have these unusual yet fun holidays all throughout the month:
