In Sweden, February has the nickname vabruari – vab is short for vård av (sjukt) barn, 'care of (sick) child', the term you use when you have to stay home from work to take care of your sick child.
Because of the climate, February tends to be the month when diseases (esp. various kinds of the flu) hit the hardest.
