As everyone knows, the month of February is about romantic dinners, boxes of chocolate, life-size stuffed animals and roses. Valentines day basically dictates all event occurring in the 28 day month. I bet you didn’t know the following 5 facts about the month of love.
1. Shortest month of the year
February is 28 days strong which makes it the shortest month of the year!
Named after the Latin word, Februum which translates into “Purification”
3. The last month added to the Roman calender
February was the last month added to the calender (technically January was added at the same time) because Romans considered winter as an “monthless” period of time. I like the way the Romans think.
4. No Full Moon
February is the only month of the year that can pass without a full moon. This doesn’t happen often but February will go without a full moon in 2018!
5. Month Twins
February, March and November are month twins! The three months always start on the same day as the week, unless February has an Leap Year. During Leap Years, February has a month twin of August.
