Twelve month of the year

One year is in today's Grigorian calender subdivided into 12 month. You can choose between 28, 29, 30 or 31 whole month. Every month has either 28, 30 or 31 dates during a joint year that has 365 dates. On 29 February, during the four-year cycle of interleap years, we are adding an additional (leap day), making interleap years 366 in number.

The only month that is 28 in joint years and 29 in intercalary years is February. Both our actual Grigorian calender and its forerunner, the Julian calender, have 12 month.

Originally used in the Romans, their name means the seventh, eight, nineth and tithest month.

Even though the Grigorian calender is the most frequently used calender today, other calender are still used to compute certain public and yearly celebrations according to the Grigorian calender.
