Face the facts of February


Valentine’s Day

Petrol station flowers and disappointing dates… If you don’t fancy celebrating Valentine’s day this year (according to a census by Channel 4 First Dates 1 in 3 adults are single) below are some of the reasons February is such a celebrated month...


World Cancer Day – 4th February

This seems like an odd celebration, but world cancer day was created to honour those who have lost the battle and those who are still fighting against cancer. To celebrate this day, the “We can. I can” campaign was designed to raise awareness, and promote lifesaving research. This is an ongoing fight so educate yourself and those around you about this dreadful disease by joining the fight and celebrating every little victory!

Yorkshire Pudding Day – 5th February

Keeping in line with our Yorkshire roots, Face Facts were very excited for this day. This one was easy to celebrate - indulging in Yorkshire Puddings with your Sunday roast or some even enjoyed a cheeky toad in the hole.


Pizza Day – 9th February

Not that we need a day to celebrate pizza, but this was another exciting day for everyone here at Face Facts. We’re huge fans of everything pizza and we certainly took advantage of this one!

International Book Giving Day – 14th February

‘A reader lives a thousand lives’ according to George RR Martin and we all love a good book! So instead of the usual box of chocolates or roses this Valentine’s Day, let’s give a book to that favourite someone. It can be anyone: family, friends, a neighbour, or even your local charity. All you have to do is give.
