February. It’s a month of love…and celebration! In February we celebrate candy hearts, black history, and U.S. presidents. We celebrate Chinese New Year, Carnival, Kumbh Mela, and the Lantern Festival. We celebrate athletes at the Superbowl, singers at the Grammy’s, actors at the Oscars and the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards. We even celebrate our dogs at the Westminister Dog Show.
With all this celebration, comes plenty of pretty fantastic pictures! And not only that, but this month we also were lucky to get new fantastic Hawaii pictures from our partner Design Pics–Pacific Stock. If you’re feeling cold and sick of winter, be sure to check them out. If you’re like most people at the end of February (myself included), all you’re looking forward to is warmer, sunnier, spring weather.
In other news this month, we were shocked (literally) from the very close meteorite that landed outside a small town in Russia. A 5-year-old boy was held hostage for about a week in Alabama, but luckily law enforcement officials rescued him right before his sixth birthday…lucky kid. And sadly on February 1, the beloved three-term mayor of New York City, Ed Koch, passed away due to heart failure.
Scroll down to see our highlights from this month, and don’t miss all of our February favorites back at Newscom.
