Originally the calendar was used to track agricultural concerns and only had ten months March - December. the time that was to be January and February had no agricultural relevance. When the calendar was competed January continued with the numbering scheme after December and February simply ran out …of days before March. (MORE)
because of the Olympics in that year it would have been a leap year so 29
The short answer is that we inherited the calendar from the Romanswho originally had calendars of ten months starting in March(spring), the winter days being simply "off calendar." When thewinter months were created, there were twelve months: 7 with 29, 1with 28, and 4 with 31 to make 355 days. As …this threw the calendar off related to the observed seasons, a13th "leap month" or "intercalary" would be added between Februaryand March which had 27 days, and February was reduced to either 23or 24. The reforms of 45 BC led to the Julian calendar with thesame number of days in each month as currently observed. Februaryinherited the intercalary day (February 29), every 4 years withsome exceptions. Because there are 365.25 days in a year and every 4 years that is aleap year an extra day is added to February.

Calendars are not easy to make. Our calendar today is based on the one that the Romans used, which was very confusing. Romulus, the first king of Rome, made a 10 month calendar based on lunar cycles that started in March and ended with December. However, it is still unclear whether or not there were… any months left out between December and March. It is possible that there were months left out because it would have been winter, and food cannot be grown in the winter. Rome's second king, Numa Pompilius, created a calendar that was exactly one lunar year long, which is 354 days. Pompilius added two months, January and February, to accommodate for the new days. Both January and February had 28 days then, but Pompilius did not like this because even numbers were considered bad luck. No one knows why, but only January, not February also, was given another day. Some believe it has to do with "Februare"meaning "to purify" in the ancient language of the Sabine tribe. This 355 day calendar would not stay in line with the 4 seasons, because it did not equal the time it took Earth to orbit Sun. To fix this, a 27 day month was added after February 23 every couple of years to make this even. Some officials called Pontiffs, who were in charge of the calendar, took advantage of the system to keep them in office longer. Julius Caesar changed everything in approximately 45 B.C., when he decided to make the calendars sun-based, not moon-based (the way the Egyptians did it). Caesar added 10 days to each year, and another day after February 23 rd every 4 years. Now every year was 365.25 days long. The actual length of a year is about 365.2425 days. It varies as well.

There are hundreds of saints with feast days in February but the best known was probably St. Valentine of Rome who has his feast on February 14.
It was a political, religious and superstitious decision made roughly 2700 years ago by the Roman King Numa Pompilius. Up to that point the Romans had a ten-month calendar with 304 days, and approximately 61 winter days (between December and March) that were not assigned to any month. Numa created a… new twelve-month calendar with 355 days by adding January (29 days) and February (28 days). In general, February has contained 28 days ever since.. Interestingly, February's 28 days were the second month of the Roman civil calendar but the last (twelfth) month of their religious calendar. (MORE)
The total number of days between Wednesday, October 3rd, 1984and Thursday, February 12th, 2009 is 8,898days .
At the origin, in the roman calendar, March was the 1st month of the year. So, logically, the last month was February. That's why it is the month with 28 days. Like the last child of one family, he takes what's left!
The first calendar was actually created by the Romans. At first, it only had 10 months and 304 days. Later on, 2 more months were added bringing the total number of days to 355. Julius Caesar is the one who gave February 28 days (except for leap year) to help the calendar year and lunar year be equa…l. (MORE)
February has 28 days because when the earth orbit the sun it take 1 year + 6 hrs so, the scientist decided to add these 6 hrs+ 6 hrs+ 6 hrs+ 6 hrs= 24 hrs = 1 day
There were 28 days in February of 1999. Only on Leap Years is there an additional day.
The holiday was originally celebrating George Washington's birthday, which is the 22nd of February. It was later expanded to a day celebrating all the presidents, and moved to the third Monday in February.
Nobody can answer this unless you give the year. And you don't have to repost your question. You can find a day of week calculator at this site. Just enter in the date and it will calculate it for you: http://www.searchforancestors.com/utility/dayofweek.html

The Christian holiday of Candlemas falls on February Second. Many traditions relting to Candlemas purport to predict the remaining time until spring. some of these relat to groundhogs, bot others to bears and marmots. So it seems likely that Groundhog day being of February 2nd derives from German… settlers' in Pennsylvania and how they treated Candlemas (MORE)

leap years have an extra day in february (feburary 29th) but leap years only happen every four years.
on the last day of february it will be the 28th, the day, e.g wednesday, changes every year so it is hard to tell. it makes it even harder to say as every four years there is a leap year, which has an efffect on february. did you know?, that february is the only month of the entire year that has 28 …days in it, all the rest have either 30 or 31!!!

February will have 30 days in the year 7008. The reason for this is basically due to the same reasons we have leap years every four years (mostly). In the year 1752 the month of September was reduced by twevle days due to the fact that century years not devided by 400 still had leap year status i.e.… 100,200,300 et. By 1752 there were 13 such years. because of this, these years were deducted from the month of September. However ONLY 12 day were removed. -- The reason for this is that, in the calander sense, there were 13 years, however in a mathematical sense there were only 12 1/4 days. I assume since 1/4 is less than half the 13th day was not also deducted. -- However, that quarter day will not go away and, in fact, will eventually become a 1/2,3/4 and finally a full day. Since it took until 1752 for a 1/4 day to be accumulated, it will take another 1752 years times 4 for a full day to be accumulated. That year will be 7008 a leap year, and also the year that February will have 30 days. One day for the normal accumulation of annual time for four years and one day for the accumulation mellennial time. -- Conceivably, since fractional seconds also accumulate, somewhere in the very distant future there could be a February 31st--if civilization is still around to count the fractional seconds. -- Robert Hayes Halfpenny (MORE)
1984 was a leap year, so there were 29 days in February. The 29thof February 1984 fell on a Wednesday.
February has 28 days in three years out of four, but on all the years divisible by four, February has 29. (I know you don't need to know this, but there is an extra day because there are actually 365.25... days in a year, so every four years they add a days to make up for it) So February 1952 had 2…9 days.

February has only 28 days UNLESS the year can be evenly divided by 4 with no leftovers. Then it is a leap year with 29 days. 1992 divided by 4 = 498 with no leftovers Therefore 1992 WAS a leapyear and therefore had 29 days.
29 days. Nice little trick to figuring this out: if the year is divisible by 4, February has 29 days. (1972/4=493)
Next time in 2012. February has an extra day in a Leap Year. A leap year is a year whose number is divisible by 4 - unless it is also divisible by 100. If it is divisible by 100, then it is a leap year only if it is divisible by 400.
Since February most often has 28 days, half of February wold have14 days. In a leap year when February has 29 days, half of Februarywould still have 14 whole days, and another half day.
In the Christian calendar, it is 'presentation of Jesus at the Temple'. and also known as 'Presentation of the Lord day'.
It was a Saturday. many thanks jakeem 2009 it was the day I stopped smoking
Leap year is what causes this. It was designed in the past for a year to be 365 days and a quarter (.25) so it would be enough days in the winter season.
February has got 28 days in an ordinary year, and 29 days in a leap year.
No, there are 28 days in February except in a leap year when there are 29 days.
98 is not divisible by 4, so 1998 was not a leap year, thus February 1998 had 28 days.
Adding 100 days to February 6 in a non leap year gives May 17. Adding 100 days to February 6 in a leap year gives May 16.

There was a time when the year began in the month containing the beginning of Spring, namely March. This meant that February was the last month of the year, and it originally had 30 days. (This is also why September, October, November, and December have roots for 7, 8, 9 and 10, respectively, even t…hough they don't fall in those positions now.) July and August were renamed for Caesars of Rome and at the time those months were only 30 days. To honor the greatness of the Caesars, those months were extended to 31 days each and the days were taken from the end of the year, which at the time was February. When Christendom spread further, the beginning of the Calendar was changed to coincide with the month epiphany, rather than the pagan tradition of the month of the vernal equinox. The months we have today came from the Romans; originally there were 10 months - which explains the September, October, November and December names - which come from the Latin for 7, 8, 9 and 10. The problems started when Julius Caesar became the dictator perpetuo (dictator for life). He wanted his own month (July) - all the months had to be shortened to create the new month. Next, Augustus became emperor and he wanted his own month (August) and he also wanted it to be longer than July. To get August to be longer than July, poor February had to lose a couple of days. Originally the calendar was used to track agricultural concerns and only had ten months March - December. the time that was to be January and February had no agricultural relevance. When the calendar was competed January continued with the numbering scheme after December and February simply ran out of days before March It was a political, religious and superstitious decision made roughly 2700 years ago by the Roman King Numa Pompilius. Up to that point the Romans had a ten-month calendar with 304 days, and approximately 61 winter days (between December and March) that were not assigned to any month. Numa created a new twelve-month calendar with 355 days by adding January (29 days) and February (28 days). In general, February has contained 28 days ever since. Interestingly, February's 28 days were the second month of the Roman civil calendar but the last (twelfth) month of their religious calendar. This is quite involved and is concerned with pride and politics. This is a very simplified explanation. Julius Caesar reformed the calendar because it was out of synchronisation with the actual seasons, this in the early part of 46BC. This year ended up by being 445 days long to bring the calendar back in line the the sky's and seasons. Not surprisingly it was called the " year of confusion ." He created a calendar that more nearly matched the annual journey of the earth round the sun. There were twelve months with alternating lengths of 31 and 30 days. The exception was February which had 29 days and Leap years gave February 30 days to keep the calendar correct. Much of his knowledge came from the Egyptians. The senate had the month of Quintilius renamed July after Caesar as an honour to his reform. When Augustus became emperor the senate voted that the month after, then called Sextilus, should be name in his honour and thus it became Augustus. However the senate did not like the fact that Augustus's month had 30 days and Julius's has 31 so they changed Augustus to 31 days, taking the extra day from February. This threw into disarray the organised way the months changed from 30 and 31 days. Not satisfied, they tinkered more altering the number of days in the months according to what they thought was important and because they did not want three consecutive months with 31 days. Consequently February lost a day (except in leap years) and we were left with the apparently random way the months alternate. (MORE)
FEBRUARY HAS 29 DAYS IN A LEAP YEAR,i.e., AFTER EVERY FOUR YEARS FEBRUARY HAS 29 DAYS. THIS IS TO ADJUST THE 1/4TH DAY WHICH OCCURS AT THE END OF EVERY YEAR AS AN YEAR HAS 365 AND A 1/4TH DAY IN IT.
February 22nd 2011 fell on a Tuesday. It was also the day that the Christchurch, New Zealand earthquake occurred.
February 28th is usually the last day of the month of February. Except when a leap year has arrived. Then it is the second to last day of the month.
Yes except leap years then 29 which since that's more than 28 the answer is yes. His many months have 28 days all of them
February 7th falls on every day of the week over an 11-year period of time. February 7th falls on a given day in a regular basis and would normally fall on the next weekday the next year, but skips a day when the leap year day gets in it's way. Below are a list of years in which February 7th fell …on every day of the week: February 7th fell on a MONDAY in 2000 February 7th fell on a TUESDAY in 1995 February 7th fell on a WEDNESDAY in 2001 February 7th fell on a THURSDAY in 2002 February 7th fell on a FRIDAY in 2003 February 7th fell on a SATURDAY in 2004 February 7th fell on a SUNDAY in 1999 Note: Dates before February 28th don't skip a day until the year after the leap year.

If you mean what are the days in February, they depend on whether or not it is a leap year. Most of the time, February has 28 days. However, every four years, February will contain a extra day making the month 29 days long.
1979 was not a leap year, so there was no 29th of February in 1979.
The month of February has 28 days except on Leap Year when it has29 days.
In most years it does. In a leap year it has a total of 29 days, sothe 28 days plus one.
February does not have 27 days. It has 28 days, or 29 days in aleap year.
February is only 28 days and once every four years is 29 days in order to match the year length with the actual time of our earth cycle around the sun.
Because each leap year it has an extra day and this year of 2016 is a leap year.
