Did You know ?

Why is September the ninth month when the word means 7 ? (September comes from the Latin root septem meaning seven.)


September is the ninth month because two months were added to the original Roman ten month calendar, but those months were January and February. Contrary to popular belief the months of July and August were NOT added, they simply were renamed. The month Quintilis (fifth) became July and, years later, Sextilis (sixth) became August. So January and February are the real culprits for the disparity of the names of the months vs. its position on the year.
