Have you ever wondered why February only has 28 days??? It is because the Romans believed even numbers to be unlucky, each month had an odd number of days, which alternated between 29 and 31. But, in order to reach 365 days, one month had to be an even number. February was chosen to be the unlucky month with 28 days.
