Gregorian calendar

The Gregorian calendar is a solar calendar with 12 months of 28–31 days each. A regular Gregorian year consist of 365 days, but in certain years known as leap years, a leap day is added to February. Gregorian years are identified by consecutive year numbers. In the Gregorian calendar, there is no year Zero. Year Zero is just a popular imagination of man as he has become used to counting numbers from 0 to 9.

Problems started when someone decided that 1 AD will follow immediately after 1 BC. This means the number of years between 1 BC and 1 AD is 1 year and not 2 years. Every year that is exactly divisible by four is a leap year, except for years that are exactly divisible by 100, but these Central years are leap years if they are exactly divisible by 400. For example, the years 1700, 1800, and 1900 are not leap years, but the year 2000 is.
