## February

The strangest month of all is February.

February has only 28 days, but on Leap Years February has 29 days!

## How to Remember

You can remember how many days in each month using this rhyme:

30 days has September,April, June and November.All the rest have 31Except February alone,Which has 28 days clearAnd 29 in each leap year.

Or you can use the “knuckle method”:

A knuckle is “31 days”, and in between each knuckle it isn’t.And where you hands meet, the two knuckles are “July, August”, which both have 31 days. (Note: the last knuckle isn’t used)

Example: October is on a knuckles, so it has 31 days

But November is not on a knuckle (and in this case has 30 days)

## The Moon

The months were originally based on the movement of the moon (the words moon and month are related), but this did not work out perfectly to one year.

So they changed how many days in some months to make them all add up to one year.

Fun Facts!

Martius for the god Mars
Aprilis (aperio is Latin for “open”, and flowers blossom in this month)
Maius for the goddess Maia
Iunius for the goddess Juno
Quintilis from Latin quinque meaning five
Sextilis for six
Septembris for seven
Octobris for eight
Novembris for nine
Decembris for ten (remember “Decimal” means based on 10)

Then around 710 BC Numa Pompilius, the second King of Rome, added January (for the god Janus) and February (from Latin februum meaning purification).

Unfortunately this wrecked the nice numbering system of the later months.

Many years later (44 BC) Quintilis was renamed Iulius (July) in honour of Julius Caesar, and in 8 BC Sextilis was renamed Augustus (August) in honour of Augustus.
