HISTORY OF FEBRUARY
Before 613 BC the Roman calendar had only 10 months. At that time, both January and February were not part of the calendar. Both of these were added to the calendar in 713 BC. Previously, they were the last two months of the year. Then, around 450 BCE, January became the first month of the year and February became the second month of the year.
Sometimes in February, there were only 23–24 days in the Roman calendar. This was to make the calendar come true with the seasons. Later, several changes occurred during the Julian calendar reform, including the elimination of the extra month. A leap year was declared every fourth year. The leap year added the 29th day in February. February is 28 days as usual. To date, the entire world is following the same calendar.
