February is National National Awareness Month Awareness Month!

Welcome to easilyamused.org's official NNAMAM page! Each February, we take time to take note of all the things of which we're asked to take note during each of the months of the year. (get that? good.)

Awareness... if we are to devote entire months to it, we must first ask, what does it mean?
WordNet defines it as:

       n 1: having knowledge of; "he had no awareness of his mistakes";
            "his sudden consciousness of the problem he faced";
            "their intelligence and general knowingness was
            impressive" [syn: {consciousness}, {cognizance}, {cognisance},
       2: state of elementary or undifferentiated consciousness; "the
          crash intruded on his awareness" [syn: {sentience}]

So, clearly, we are being called upon to maintain a state of sentience. This, I can support.

To this end, we've scoured the web to bring you the big list of awareness months!

In the spirit of inclusiveness, we list not only observances which strictly follow the "National _____ Awareness Month" form, but also others with a basic philosophical similarity.
