February is the second and the shortest month of the year with 28 days. However every 4th year it has 29 days which is why it is called as the Leap year. These changes have a significant story behind it.
It is during the reign of Julies Ceaser, February was made to 29 days and every 4th year it had 30 days. Subsequently during the reign of Augusts Ceaser he brought back the number of days in February to 28 and every 4th year to 29 days. The deducted one day was added to the month of August and thus it became 31 days.
The name February is derived from the Latin origin of “Febum” which means purification. Ancient Roman calendar shows the purification ceremony in their religious and culture activities took place by mid February.
