Have you ever wondered why February is the shortest month of the year? Well, I have! It was bothering me so much that I decided to do some research about it! February is the only month with less than 30 days. Normally, it has 28 days, and every four years, it has 29 days. The special years with 29 days are called Leap Years. A Leap Year has 366 days instead of the usual 365. A long time ago, the Romans had a 10 month calendar and then they decided to create a 12 month calendar that matches the lunar cycle. Later on, Julius Caesar decided to change the calendar and make it sun-based. All of this calendar switching means that poor February ends up with less days than all the other months! Those crazy Romans!
