Why is February such a short month?

We all know that February is the shortest month of the year with either 28 days or 29 in a leap year – but why is this the case when other months have 30 or 31 days?

Thirty days have November,
April, June, and September.
February has 28 alone,
And all the rest have 31.

Well, it’s just one of the things that the Romans did for us!

I look after communications and marketing at Dairy Diary. I’m a busy mum and love home baking and cooking for my family. In my spare time I enjoy visiting the theatre, eating out with friends and exploring the great outdoors!
