Hello my beloved ones,

Today is the last day of the month (that’s why I love February). So, in order to celebrate the last day of my favourite month, I decided to make some research to find out some of the most important or iconic moments over the years that took place at this day. And I think I nailed it!

So, what you’ll find in this post are some of the most iconic February 28 happenings in the world’s history. Some may be related to arts, other to religion, politics or even health, but the thing is they all represent important cultural and social events. Let’s be just a little bit more educated:

1759 – At this year, Pope Clement XIII allows Bible to be translated into various languages.

1838 – 79 years later, Robert Nelson, leader of the Patriotes Rebellion, proclaims the independence of Lower Canada (today known as Québec).

1847 – Wars are not positive happenings, but they are part of our past and unfortunately, part of our present. In 1847, US defeats Mexico in battle of Sacramento.

1862 – The epic Opera “La Reine de Saba” premieres in Paris, at Salle Le Peletie.

1903 – Barney Dreyfuss & James Potter buys Philadelphia Phillies for $170,000. It was on sale? (just a joke.)

1917 – Associated Press reports Mexico & Japan will allie with Germany if US enters WWI.

1953  American molecular biologists James D. Watson and Francis Crick announce to friends that they have discovered the double-helix structure of DNA (the molecule that contains the human genes) in a Cambridge University laboratory. The official announcement was made in a different date.

2013  A neuroscientist at Duke University announces he has successfully connected the brains of two rats allowing them to share information, and Pope Benedict XVI (Joseph Aloisius Ratzinger) resigns, becoming the first pope to do so since the year of 1415.

2014  Last year, this was a sad day. Russia send armed troops into the Sevastopol airport, Crimea, to protect its interests against Ukraine. 

2015  Scientists have announced that chronic fatigue syndrome is not psychological: it has a biological cause actually. Causes of the disease include viral infections, hormone imbalance and psychiatric problems (such as trauma and stress). And now, something happy: has been found the teenager who was kidnapped as a newborn baby from a Cape Town hospital in 1997. She and her younger biological sister attended the same school ans became friends. What a great thing!

Have a nice 28 February and be happy every single day!
