    Unhappy There's a 31st of July???

    I would have never guessed there were 31 days in a month, untill I saw it on the message board. More info on why there are 31 days would be nice to know. I know there were people back in the preroman/anciant Greece/semi Egyptian time when they started the whole calender thingie, but I'd like more detailed info like, names, dates, places, and such and such.

    Weren't you taught in grade school . . .

    30 days has September, April, June, and November. All the rest have 31 except February which has 28 and on leap year 29.

    What get's me is Smarch. Lousy Smarch weather . . .

    I think it's simply because "they" didn't want any non-31-day month to be directly before or after another non-31-day month so since June is 30 days, July couldn't be.

    30 days hath Septober, April, June, and no wonder. All the rest have peanut butter, all except my dear grandmother. She had a little red tricycle... I stole it!

    yeah, i was "taught" this as well, but for some reason it never ever stuck in my mind. i never found it memorable! it was too many words to be a memorable thing for me, aparently.

    i'm always surprised at the dates... oh, this month has 31 days? cool. one more day before i have to pay the bills...

    SMARCH RULES!!! D'OH

    July and August are both 31 day months.
