February 01: Today in History

By Bryan | Published: 1st Feb, 2020

Ahh, February. It’s the shortest month of the year. You might have noticed a streak of love this morning when you woke up. Well, it’s the first day of the love month. It’s when the world’s true valentines are born.

01 Feb. Today's date is interesting because more than just the first day of the love month, a baby was born in the Philippines at 4:00 in the morning weighed 7 pounds — more than the average birth weight of a Filipino newborn that time.

Bryan. That’s his name. It’s of Irish, British origin meaning "strong, virtuous, and honorable". An alternate spelling of Brian but slightly more popular than the original. Not too shabby for a small "y".

Aquarius. I know. Having an Aquarian sign often implies that you are a conceptual thinker and individualistic. Sexy. Key phrase: "I know".

Facts. According to one study by the UK Office of National Statistics, people born in February have artsy sides — they are likely to be an artist. While one study published in the Journal of Social Sciences found that they are more likely to be celebrities. Translation? They’re destined for greatness. Not too shabby.

Truth is, I’m not much of an artsy nor famous. But just like any other ordinary person, I’m defo destined for greatness (or something). We all are.
