Months of The Year | 12 Months of The Year in English

Do you know how many months are there in the year? Yes, there are 12 months in the year according to the modern English calendar. A year is started from JANUARY (month 1) and end in DECEMBER (month 12). But do you know the names of all the months and how many days they have? And which seasons in which months? If your answers are “no”, then let me tell you a lot of information about the months of the year. 

At first,  read the months’ names and their numbers of days:

  1. JANUARY – 31 Days
  2. FEBRUARY – 28/29 Days 
  3. MARCH – 31 Days
  4. APRIL  – 30 Days
  5. MAY – 31 Days
  6. JUNE – 30 Days
  7. JULY – 31 Days
  8. AUGUST – 31 Days
  9. SEPTEMBER – 30 Days
  10. OCTOBER – 31 Days
  11. NOVEMBER – 30 Days
  12. DECEMBER – 31 Days

January, March, May, July, August, October, and December all have 31 days, whereas the other three months, with the exception of February, all have 30 days. In a regular year, February is the sole month having 28 days and 29 days in leap years.

 What is a leap year?

There are 365 days in a year, as we all know. Every four years, however, there is a year with 366 days, including a 29-day February month. The year with 366 days is known as a ‘leap year,’ and February 29th is known as a ‘leap day’.

How do you know if a year is a leap year?

It’s very easy to say immediately which year is a leap year. The years that can be divided by 4 are called ‘Leap Years’. For examples, 1988, 2004, 2008, 2012, 2020 etc. are leap years.

Let’s look at the chart below to learn about the seasons and clothing for each month.

The seasons are not the same everywhere in the world. Some places in the world have only two or three seasons and some have four or five seasons in the year. But most of the places have five seasons all over the year. So, I am giving you the informations about all the five seasons which are found in the major parts of the world.
