Fun Fact:(well the "fact" part of this Fun Fact is up for debate) February is the second month of the year, duh, but do you know why it's the shortest month? Most of the months have 30 or 31 days but February typically has 28 days. That hasn't always been the case though, in fact it didn't even exist for a while there. We just had December...then nothing. Someone added January eventually, and that left 29 days without a name, so they called them February. Some people say the Roman emperor Augustus took one day from February and added that to August because August was a month that was named after him...apparently he thought a lot about himself. It's also believed that because February is so cold, and depressing Julius Caesar just made it 28 days so the month would go by faster. He figured out we'd have to add the 29th back in there every 4 years to even the calendar out, or else eventually we'd be celebrating Christmas in the middle of the summer. Whomever came up with it, did a good job...now it host Super Bowls, Valentine's Day, Black History month, President's Day, and the day everyone loves Thank a Mailman Day! ceasar

Did you know February typically is spelled wrong in Google searches over 300 million times a year. Good thing we know how to spell Febuary!
