History and Invention of the Calendar
The calendar that we all use today was altered from the earlier Roman version started by Caesar and after his death finished in 46 BC. It was not until 1752 that the United Kingdom decided to change it. Up till then there was an extra six hours added every year.
That is when the Leap year came in to being. On the 3rd September 1752 the date was changed to the 14th September. Another major change that year was that the 25th March was no longer the first day of the year. This became 1st January.
The Romans Named the Months
Named after the Roman God Janus. He was the God of doorways and passageways. He looked backwards and forwards. This month has 31 days
Until 1752 this was the last month of the year so it was named after the Roman festival that took place in this month of purification. The festival was called Februa and it was used for spiritual cleansing before the New Year. This month has 28 days accept for a leap year when it has 29 days.
