#214 I miss febbraio

Febbraio corto e amaro (‘February: short and bitter’)

Febbraio, febbraiello, cortino e bugiardello (‘february: little short liar’) 

Febbraio febbraietto, corto e maledetto (‘february, little february, short and wretch’)

Chi vuole un buon erbaio semini in Febbraio (‘if you want a good garden sow on february’)

Febbraio nevoso, estate gioioso (‘snowy february, happy summer’)

There are many proverbi about febbraio… the shortest and craziest month of the year, that deceives us with sunny days and then bring more snow

The month of San Valentino and Carnevale

But in Sicilia and Calabria almond trees blossom, and at the beginning of the month they celebrate the festa dei mandorli in fiore (‘almond-blossom festival’)

Here’s Agrigento (Sicily)
