Morning Start: All numbers before 1,000 don’t contain the letter A

Your morning start for Tuesday, February 1 2022

Happy Tuesday! Let’s get your morning going with the morning start!

Fun Fact: If you were to spell out every number from 1-999, not one contains the letter ‘A’.

‘A’ is the second most commonly-used letter, yet one thousand (1,000) is the first number spelt out that has the first A in it.

On this day

In 2004, the New England Patriots beat the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 38. The game was also known for the controversial halftime show where a wardrobe malfunction occurred while Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson were preforming.

National Holidays

According to National Holiday, February 1st is National Freedom Day and National Dark Chocolate Day.
