February Birthday Guide

They say it’s your February birthday? Don’t worry, we’ll keep this as short as the month you were born in so we can get to the partying.

While February birthdays might get lumped in with Valentine’s Day, they’re also special because it's statistically unique to be born in the shortest month of the year. But what these kiddos lack in days, they make up for in height: Science shows babies born in February are typically taller and weigh more than their friends at age 7 (further proof: Michael Jordan celebrates his birthday on February 17). February kids can also fame-claim being born in the same month that we pin our hopes on a groundhog, honor pizza (National Pizza Day is February 9th), and spread good vibes (Bob Marley was born on February 6th)!

So if all that — plus hearts, flowers, and chocolate — sounds like a reason to celebrate, read on for our gift list, cake making (and decorating) guide, and party ideas for the best February birthday yet.
