Calendar

February is the second month in the Julian and Gregorian calendar. It based is not only the shortest month, but has the uniqueness of having different number of days, based on the category year. February has generally 28 days every year, except 29 days if the year happens to be a leap year. Leap year occurs once in every four years. To identify a leap year, the common method is to ascertain the complete divisibility of the year by 4. For example, 2016 is totally divisible by 4 without leaving a remainder.  (2016 ÷ 4 = 504). The next leap year, on the same lines, would be 2020.

February was named after the Latin term Februum which means purification, giving due consideration to the purification ritual held on February 15 (full moon) in the old Lunar Roman Calendar.
