Is it your Birthday Today?  (Aquarius / January 20 - February 19 / Birthstone - Garnet)
Happy Birthday! - Birthdays are celebrated in numerous cultures, often with a birthday party  and birthday cake, or in some instances, a rite of passage. The Western tradition of adding lit candles to the top of a birthday cake originates in 18th century Germany?

Your Birthday Flower: Birthday flowers are ascribed by tradition for those born on any given date in the year in Europe and the West. Not all are precisely flowers, however. Did you know the birtday flower for Feb.19 is the spruce? "A spruce is a tree of the genus Picea (pronounced /paɪˈsiː.ə/), a genus of about 35 species of coniferous evergreen trees in the Family Pinaceae, found in the northern temperate and boreal (taiga) regions of the earth. Spruces are large trees, from 20–60 metres (66–200 ft) tall when mature, and can be dis-tinguished by their whorled branches and conical form. The needles, or leaves, of spruce trees are attached singly to the branches in a spiral fashion, each needle on a small peg-like structure called a pulvinus."

Roman Catholic saints' feast days: - February 19
Barbatus of Benevento - "Saint Barbatus of Benevento (Italian: San Barbato; c. 610 — February 29, 682), also known as Barbas, was a bishop of Benevento from 663 to 682. He succeeded Ildebrand in this capacity. He assisted in a church council called by Pope Agatho in Rome in 680 and in 681 attended the Third Council of Constantinople against the Monothelites."
Conrad of Piacenza - "On one occasion, when he was engaged in his usual pastime of hunting, he ordered his attendants to fire some brushwood in which game had taken refuge. The prevailing wind caused the flames to spread rapidly, and the surrounding fields and forest were soon in a state of conflagration. A mendicant, who happened to be found near the place where the fire had originated, was accused of being the author. He was imprisoned, tried, and condemned to death. As the poor man was being led to execution, Conrad, stricken with remorse, made open confession of his guilt; and in order to repair the damage of which he had been the cause, was obliged to sell all his possessions. Thus reduced to poverty, Conrad retired to a lonely hermitage some distance from Piacenza, while his wife entered the Order of Poor Clares."

Name Day: - February 19 - (name days)
A name day is a tradition celebrated in many countries in Europe and Latin America of celebrating on a particular day of the year associated with the one's given name. The custom originated with the Catholic and Orthodox calendar of saints, where believers, named after a particular saint, would celebrate that saint's feast day. In many countries, however, there is no longer any explicit connection to Christianity.
