After Christmas and New Yearís, I usually find myself resting up for a while, then getting bored with the long, gray, cold days of winter. This year has been different. I am keeping very busy with work and new commitments. I am also planning a dinner party with friends and I have already booked a mid-winter trip to a warmer climate. If you are having trouble finding something to do, look no further.   

Find out how much longer winter will last on Candlemas, Feb. 2. If itís sunny, there will be more winter and if itís a cloudy day, the worst of winter is over, or at least thatís how the legend goes. Feb. 14 provides a special day for lovers. Create a romantic evening for your special one. Flowers, chocolates, cards, a bottle of wine, a candlelit dinner, pick your favourite. 

After acknowledging your sweetheart, remember your mother on March 6, Mothering Sunday. Flowers and cards will work for her as well. Next on the list of events, St. Patrickís Day arrives on March 17. Whether you are Irish or not, you can still enjoy the festivities and Guiness.  

Easter falls on March 27 this year, followed by Easter Monday on March 28. Learn about Easter traditions from In a Nutshell. Keep reading to find out how to visualise your success.
