It's February 1st. My guess is that if a vote were taken on what your least favorite month of the year is, it would either be January or February. So maybe it's a good thing that February is so short.
Do you know why it is the shortest month? In the western world, we go by the Julian Calendar -- established by Julius Caesar. July is named after him, and it has 31 days. August had been named for his successor, Augustus Caesar. August had only 30 days, and that did not sit well with the new emperor. How could he allow Julius' month to have more days that his? So he took a day away from February so that his month would also have 31 days.
I wonder why he chose February though? Why not January or May or March or October or December that already had 31 days?
