Welcome to the Sts. Anargyroi online community!
The word February comes from the Latin root februum, which means purification. The Romans had a purification ritual called Februa that took place in the middle of the month (the English word fever shares the same root as februum). There is no connection between Februa and Christianity, but we do have our own purification time in Orthodoxy, and most years it does indeed begin in February. Lent starts this year on Clean Monday, February 23. Lent is a time of spiritual as well as mental and physical purification, as we do our best to fast. By modifying and moderating what we eat, we try to focus on spiritual matters as we prepare for Pascha - Easter - the high point of our church calendar.
