It is important to remind that the traditional year will begin on March: thus purification during February is necessary to prepare the beginning of the new year.
This month is dedicated to Februus and Februa (male and feminine numen of "The Purifying") who, being positive energies, are opposed to Febris (The Fever), negative energy.
The festivities during February are thus linked to purification activities (for the body, spirit, sites, objects, etc.)
February the 1st - Amburbium: festivity for the purification of villages and cities and their public sites through a circular procession holding a februum (a purification tool). The same ceremony can be applied for home purification.
