February 15: National Gumdrop Day

Gumdrops have been around for at least 200 years – who could flavored gelatin coated in sugar? They’re tasty and easy to decorate with! (okay, well, I greatly prefer chocolate or a cookie or something, but everyone else seems to like them.)

So, February 15 is National Gumdrop Day. After all the chocolate from Valentine’s Day, now is the time to go get a bag of gumdrops  and start playing with your food!

February 15: Susan B. Anthony Day

Susan B. Anthony was born February 15, 1820. Although we remember her primarily for her work promoting women’s rights, she was also an abolitionist (arguing for civil rights around the time of the Civil War). Susan B. Anthony Day celebrates her birthday and the women’s suffrage movement.
