Every third week in March we celebrate and observe National Poison Prevention Week (NPPW). Established in 1961 by Congress, National Poison Prevention Week was originated to raise awareness of poison prevention and safety.

Child poisoning deaths have fallen by 73 percent since 1972 due to tough federal laws including the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA) of 1970, but there’s still room to improve. Help us spread awareness. Click here for more information: http://dlvr.it/T4JtC2

Happy Leap Day! You may know that leap years exist so that our calendar year can catch up to the solar year, which is actually about 365 and 1/4 days long, but did you know that leap years do not actually occur every four years?

A leap year occurs in every year that is divisible by four, but only in century years that are evenly divided by 400. Therefore, 800, 1200, and 2000 were leap years - but 1700 and 1900 were not because even though they are divisible by four, they are not divisible by 400.

The next time we will skip a leap year is in the year 2100 - so it’s probably not a very big concern for most of us.

Happy Presidents Day! Have you ever wondered what this Holiday actually celebrates?

George Washington was born on February 22, 1732. President's Day was celebrated on this date for over a century. At some point in the late 19th century, Abraham Lincoln, whose birthday is on February 12, was thrown into the celebratory mix. The Holiday was often referred to as 'Washington and Lincoln Day.' Then, in 1968, the Uniform Monday Holiday Act moved it to the third Monday in February to give federal employees a three-day weekend.

So, we're sort of celebrating George Washington's and Abraham Lincoln's birthdays, but we're mostly celebrating the opportunity to get Monday off. Not a bad reason to celebrate!

Imprisoned in the Tower of London for 25 years after being captured at the Battle of Agincourt, Charles used his extensive downtime to pen numerous poems, including fourteen Valentine's Day-themed ones. He even signed one 'Your Valentine."

This just in - Punxsutawney Phil says spring is coming early this year!

The Groundhog Day tradition derives from the Pennsylvania Dutch superstition that if a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day and sees its shadow, it will retreat to its den, and winter will go on for six more weeks; if it does not see its shadow, spring will arrive early.

The weather lore was brought from German-speaking areas where the badger (German: Dachs) is the forecasting animal. It is related to the lore that clear weather on the Christian festival of Candlemas forebodes a prolonged winter.
