National Tortilla Chip Day - always February 24
A tortilla chip is a snack food made from corn tortillas, which are cut into wedges and then fried (alternatively they may be discs pressed out of corn masa then fried or baked). Corn tortillas are made of corn, vegetable oil, salt and water. Although first mass-produced in Los Angeles in the late 1940s, tortilla chips are considered to be a Mexican food. Though usually made of yellow corn (as pictured), they can also be made of white, blue, or red corn. ...... Click on photo for larger image
Fun Food Facts: "A more elaborate dish utilizing tortilla chips is nachos, which consists tortilla chips served with melted or shredded cheese, although often other toppings are added or substituted, such as meat, salsa (such as pico de gallo), refried beans, guacamole, sour cream, diced onions, olives, and pickled jalapeños. "

Birthday Flower for February 24 is Straw:
Straw is an agricultural by-product, the dry stalks of cereal plants, after the grain or seed and chaff has been removed. Straw makes up about half of the yield of cereal crops such as barley, oats, rice, rye and wheat. In times gone by, it was regarded as a useful by-product of the harvest, but with the advent of the combine harvester, straw has become more burdensome to agriculture          (not to be confused with the Flower-of-the-month)

National Artist Day - February 24 (Thailand)
"The National Artist (Thai: ศิลปินแห่งชาติ, RTGS: Sinlapin Haeng Chat, IPA: [sĭn láʔ pin hɛ̀ːŋ tɕʰâːt]) is a title given annually by the Office of the National Culture Commission of Thailand, recognizing notable Thai artists in literature, fine arts, visual arts, applied arts (architecture, design) and performing arts (Thai dance, international dance, puppetry, shadow play, Thai music, international music, drama and film).

Since 1985, the honors have been presented on February 24, "National Artist Day" in Thailand. The date was chosen because it is the birth date of Buddha Loetla Nabhalai, or King Rama II, who was an artist himself."

Regifugium (Ancient Rome) - February 24
"In the Roman religion, Regifugium or Fugalia was an annual observance that took place every February 24. In Latin, the name of the observance transparently means "flight of the king."

What exactly this observance was occasioned by is a matter of some controversy. According to Varro and Ovid, this was a festival commemorating the flight of the last king of Rome, Tarquinius Superbus, in 510 BC."

Dragobete - (Romania) - February 24
Dragobete is a traditional Romanian holiday, celebrated on February 24. Dragobete was the son of Baba Dochia. "The day is known as "the day when the birds are betrothed". It is around this time that the birds begin to build their nests and mate. On this day, considered locally the first day of spring, boys and girls gather vernal flowers and sing together. Maidens used to collect the snow that still lies on the ground in many villages and then melt it, using the water in magic potions throughout the rest of the year. Those who take part in Dragobete customs are supposed to be protected from illness, especially fevers, for the rest of the year. If the weather allows, girls and boys pick snowdrops or other early spring plants for the person they are courting. In Romania, Dragobete is known as a day for lovers, rather like Valentine's Day."
