For convenience of reckoning, it is usual in calendars to call the year 365 days for 3 successive years, and every fourth year 366, (for in 4 years the six hours overplus amount to a day) which is called bissextile or leap year. This day is added to February.

The common year is divided into twelve months, which are sometimes called calendar months, because they are the months used in calendars.

The names of the months, and the number of days in each, are as follows:
