Which are the twele months in gregorian year?
The twelve months in the Gregorian year are January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, and December. They are exactly the same months as the months in the Julian Year. The difference between the Gregorian Calendar and the Julian Calendars have to do with the calculation of leap years. In The Gregorian Calendar, leap years do not occur in years ending in 00 unless the number preceding the 00 is divisible by 4. This keeps the calendar the same for sunrise and sunset at about the same throughout the year. The Julian Calendar makes no exception for the difference in the difference between the slight difference between the solar year and the calendar year. It is far easier for a computer to calculate dates for ancient astronomical phenomena using a Julian Calendar than using a Gregorian Calendar. It is of course then quite easy for a computer to translate the date to a Gregorian Date.

Why is November not the ninth month of the year?
November used to be the ninth month of the year (and logically should be), until countries changed from the Julian Calendar to the Gregorian Calendar. For instance, England did not change to the Gregorian Calendar until 1752.09.14. The states of Washington, Oregon, and those on the Eastern Seaboard, changed on this date, as well. The rest of the United States of America changed in 1582. November Latin: November. From the word novem, nine, because it was the 9th month in the old Roman calendar. http://www.tondering.dk/claus/calendar.html = The Calendar FAQ http://www.norbyhus.dk/calendar.html = The Perpetual Calendar (dates for when most countries switched to using the Gregorian Calendar) http://sacred-texts.com/time/smd/smd13.htm = The Romans and the 9th Month Of course, for general knowledge, you can search "Julian calendar" and "Gregorian calendar" on Wikipedia.org.
Was the year 600 a leap year?
600 is not a leap year according to the rules of the Gregorian calendar (it is evenly divisible by 100 but not evenly divisible by 400). However, it was a leap year under the Julian calendar. And unfortunately, the powers that be seem to like to keep dates before October 15, 1582 according to the Julian calendar instead of converting them to their Gregorian equivalents.
Why is Hanukkah celebrated on different dates?
Why is the Russian revolution called the February revolution?
International Women's Day, 1917, in St. Petersburg/Petrograd, Russia, marked the start of the Russian Revolution. The dates were March 8th to the 12th on the Gregorian calendar. This is the current common calendar. In Russia at the time, the Romanov dynasty had never implemented the change to the Gregorian calendar from the Julian calendar, as most all other countries had already done. There is a discrepancy between the two systems, which at the time caused the Julian calendar to be 13 days behind the Gregorian calendar. So according to Russian calendars at the time, the dates of the uprising were February 23rd to the 27th on the Julian caledar. This being the case the event became known as the February, rather than the March Revolution.

Which calendar first divied dates into two categories bc and ad?
Although the Julian calendar, which is extremely similar to the Gregorian calendar, the most popular calendar now, had been in use since it was introduced by Julius Caesar in 46 BC, the system that we use now for numbering the years of the Julian and Gregorian calendars was not introduced until AD 525, and it did not become widely popular until the 9th century.
How do the months of the Hebrew calendar correspond to the Gregorian calendar?
Answer 1 The Hebrew months have a rough correspondence to the Gregorian calendar. They line up with Gregorian months in a general way. Answer 2 The Hebrew calendar is a lunisolar calendar which means that there is a general correspondence between the Hebrew months and the seasons, and there is a nearly exact correspondence between the Hebrew dates and the phases of the moon. This is as opposed to the Gregorian calender which is a solar calendar and has an almost exact correspondence between its months and the seasons (but no correspondence with the phases of the moon). As a result, while the Hebrew month of Nissan will dance around (from the Gregorian perspective) between March and April, it will never be in August or November or February. This is in contrast to the Islamic Calendar which is purely lunar and where the months dance around the solar year. For example, Ramadan is currently (in 2013) a summer month. In 2030, it will be a winter month, etc. Additionally, because of the way the Hebrew calendar accounts for its lunisolar discrepancies and the because of the way that the Gregorian Calendar accounts for its discrepancies, the Hebrew Calendar and the Gregorian Calendar date will be the same (or only one day off) for every date nineteen years apart. For example: August 25, 1994 was 18 Elul 5754 and August 25, 2013 (19 years later) will be 19 Elul 5773 (19 years later).

Do modern history books correct pre-gregorian calendar dates?
Generally, unless otherwise specified, given dates that precede 15 October 1582 should be considered Julian dates. That was the date of the initial switch to the Gregorian calendar, although only Italy, Spain, Portugal and Poland made the switch on that date. I have been unable to ascertain why pre-1582 dates are not converted to their equivilents in the proleptic Gregorian calenadar, which is the name of the Gregorian calendar when it is applied to times before its own release, even though the error in the Julian calendar was widely understood and believed. When Great Britain and all of its colonies switched to the Gregorian calendar in 1752, many people began the practice of writing "o.s." or "n.s." after dates in order to specify whether the date was old style (Julian) or new style. Many of the founding fathers of the United States, including the first four U.S. Presidents, were born while Britain was still using the Julian calendar, but the dates that pertain to them that are recorded in our history books are "new style." In the early 1970s the US federal holiday of Washington's Birthday was moved from 22nd February to the third Monday of February. Ironically, the third Monday of February never falls on either 11th February, Washington's birthday in the Julian calendar, or 22nd February, the Gregorian equivalent.
How is the Islamic calendar different from the Gregorian calendar?
The Islamic calendar is lunar, which means it's based on the phases of the moon. It is either 354 or 355 days long, and began in the year 622 CE when the Prophet Muhammad migrated from Mecca to Medina. The Gregorian calendar is solar. It is about 365 days long, and numbers 0 CE at the birth of Jesus. It is a reform of the Julian calendar as used up to Pope Gregory's time, together with a reform of the lunar cycle used by the Church along with the Julian calendar for calculating dates of Easter.
Why are western Easter and orthdox Easter different?
Because the western churches use the Gregorian calendar and the eastern orthodox churches use the Julian calendar. Easter is always celebrated on the first Sunday following the first full moon after the beginning of Spring. Because the two calenders have different dates for the beginning of Spring the dates of Easter differ. According to the Gregorian calendar Spring begins on March 21, so western Easter can be between March 22 and April 25 (both dates included).
