The month calendar is divided into 12 months in a year in accordance with the Gregorian calendar. English months often last 28 days, 29 days, 30 days, or 31 days. Each month has either 28, 30, or 31 days throughout a regular year of 365 days. In leap years, which occur roughly every four years, we add an additional (intercalary) day, leap day, making the year 366 days long.
You may use a rhyme to help you remember the months of the year: “Thirty days has September, April, June, and November; all the others have thirty-one, except for February, which has twenty-eight days clear; and twenty-nine in each leap year.” For more details on the months of the year, read this page!
