February The Unique Month
The most unique month of all is February.
February only has 28 days, but it has 29 days on Leap Years February!
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 31
Except February alone,
Which has 28 days clear
And 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)
The months were originally based on the movement of the moon, 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.
