Why does February have 28 days? No Anthony, it was not Caesar August that made the call but the Roman King Numa Pompilius who preceded Augustus by 700 years. The calendar of his day had 10 months — six months of 30 days and four months of 31 days.
A year of 304 days, however, didn’t synch with the lunar year of 354 days much less the dozen annual cycles of the moon.
So Numa added January and February. His Romans, however, believed even numbers were unlucky so he rounded the year up to 355 days and subtracted a day from the 30 day months.
He couldn’t make the math work, however, without at least one month having even numbers. Poor February was picked which also got the gloomy tasks of honoring the dead.
So why are September, April, June and November even numbered months today? That’s a story for another time.
