WHY FEBRUARY 2?
Why February 2? Well we were looking for a day that would have meant something to Shakespeare and 2 February scores on two counts. On February 2, 1585 Shakespeare’s twins were baptized, Hamnet and Judith. And on February 2, 1602, Shakespeare’s play Twelfth Night, about twins Viola and Sebastian played at London’s Middle Temple.
