‘Feb Giving’ Warms Minnesotan’s Winter Blues

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — By this time in the winter, many Minnesotans have had it. Just looking outside, it seems spring is still far off.

That’s why James Norton and Becca Dilley decided we all need more to look forward to this time of year.

Photojournalist Carly Danek takes us to the Longfellow neighborhood of South Minneapolis to see how a new holiday called “Feb Giving” is filling stomachs and souls.

    Great idea! Nothing in the world like good food, wine, and support from fellow Minnesotans to get you through a tough winter🙂

    I like it for this reason. In Wisconsin, our deer/gun hunting season falls during the week of traditional Thanksgiving. What with the guys being gone hunting, and I am gearing up for Black Friday shopping, Thanksgiving has been lost. We just don’t do it. But I wasn’t raised in this area, and I do miss this holiday. So what a GREAT way to get the best of it all!?!! So for us, we certainly will be incorporating this holiday into our family traditions. It simply makes complete sense! Thanks for doing this segment!!😉
