Friday Five- options, options edition




There is so much going on this weekend that I thought I'd provide an options Friday 5!!!!

.
First Superbowl ( someone explain to this Brit the significance)- love it or hate it?


5 reasons please!!!!!
.
Second Candlemas/ Imbloc/ Groundhog day/ St Brigid's day- all of these fall on either the 1st or 2nd February.
.
1. Do you celebrate one or more of these?
2. How?
3. Is this a bit of fun or deeply significant?
4. Are festivals/ Saints days important to you?
5.Name your favourite Saints day/ celebration.
.
Bonus- 2nd Feburary is also my Birthday- I will donate £1.00 for every comment on my Friday Five Post to the Methodist Relief and Development Fund.

Let us know in comments if you play. And for even more visits to your blog, post a direct link in your comment using the following formulation:
<a href="the url of your blog post goes here">what you want the link to say goes here</a>

  1. commenting to wish you happy birthday.

    and hoping someone will explain groundhog day to me

    None of those things happen here but we have Runeberg (national poet) day next week and we eat special madeleine type cakes with raspberry jam. yum.

  2. Happy Birthday Sally! I am following Lorna's birthday wishes!

    I played, in a sort of an offbeat sort of way, going with the 2nd option.

  5. Wasn't St. Brigid Irish? That's the extent of what I know about these days other than Groundhog Day!

    Saints' days aren't important to me, so I won't play, but will learn from the rest of you.

  7. Can you tell I've had too much winter...I thought today was Feb. 2nd. Of course I haven't heard if the groundhog saw his shadow, he's not coming out until tomorrow. Duh!

  30. Happy, happy birthday!
    I didn't have a lot to say about either topic, but I played here.

  31. The only Saints I know didn't make the play-offs... so yup, I went with football. You see, the Super Bowl has everything to do with crazy fans and herding cats. And NOTHING to do with curling!

    See what I mean HERE!
