Quotes About February Being A Unique Month

The number of days in February makes it unique from the other months. Because of superstition, astrology, and politics, Romans only assigned 28 February days.

For them, even numbers are unlucky, but since it's a month for purification, they let it slide. Furthermore, due to the excess quarter of a day each solar year, we add one day to the second month every four years, which will be called a leap year. Here's a short, fun video by PBS Digital Studios that explains the evolution of this month. Will you choose February as your favorite month?
