So far I know, the Earth actually moves round the Sun in every 365 days and 6 hours. For easy mathemetical calculation, thus it is decided that the month February would be of only 28 days in consecutive three years while the fourth year would be 29 days so as to simplify that 6 hours into a whole day, i.e. 24 hours.

This's de story ..

You may be closer to the truth than you think, scoop. But let's dispose of the other explanations first. A widely believed but possibly erroneous story has it that February is so short because the Romans borrowed a day from it to add to August. August was originally a 30-day month called Sextilis, but it was renamed to honor the emperor Augustus Caesar, just as July had earlier been renamed to honor Julius Caesar. Naturally, it wouldn't do to have Gus's month be shorter than Julius's, hence the switch.

But some historians say this is bunk. They say February has always had 28 days, going back to the 8th century BC, when a Roman king by the name of Numa Pompilius established the basic Roman calendar. Before Numa was on the job the calendar covered only ten months, March through December. December, as you may know, roughly translates from Latin as "tenth." July was originally called Quintilis, "fifth," Sextilis was sixth, September was seventh, and so on.

Because year is only 365 days so some lucky months gets 31 days some moderately lucky ones get 30 days and most unlucky ones get 28 days, but plus point is you have to work only 24 days(4 Sundays) in Feb to get your full month salary
