Did You Know that February 15th is Phil Collins Day? Well, It Is!

Did You Know that February 15th is Phil Collins Day? Well, It Is!
It’s the day after Valentine’s Day. You’re hungover, bloated, and there’s a little chocolate on your face. Nope, still there. Okay, it’s like half gone. There, you got it.
There’s only one surefire cure to the post-Valentinian blues: Phil Collins.

Phil Collins Day is a real thing with a real website and everything. Since (at least) 2007, Phil Phans (just go with it) have joined together at a set location in the New York area on February 15th for some Phil Phun (you don’t have to go with this one). The first year was a dance party with Phil masks, and last year there was a "Testify" confessional booth (the confessions were then mailed to Phil himself!). In 2011, there was a Phil Collins Day parade which was, according to a respected member of the Popdust family, "One of the craziest things ever."

It might all sound a little Phoolish, but this year’s theme, Take Me Home, has an uplifting purpose. Inspired by Hurricane Sandy’s devastating effects on Rockaway, Queens last fall, folks are gathering there for a healing drum circle.
