The only notable associations Franklin's life had to the month of February were the birth of his illegitimate grandson (February 22, 1762) and the Honorary Doctorate of Laws degree he received from the University of St Andrews (February 1759). Other modern associations made between Benjamin Franklin and this month are the inaccurate linking of Franklin with Presidents' Day (incredibly this is a common error) and the subway "Febru-Any" commercial. I would postulate that Subway's commercial may be referencing Franklin's adage, "A penny saved is a penny earned".

Benjamin Franklin was born in the Boston area and ended up being an apprentice to his older brother. In is mid-teens chose to create a life of his own and settled in Philadelphia. He never went to college, but his accomplishments brought him an honorary degree. That is why you occasionally hear him referred to as Dr. Franklin.

He never graduated from high school or college. He was self-educated after his father pulled him from school in order to work for his brother to help support the family. He only let others call him Dr. Franklin after receiving an honorary doctorate.
