Counting the Months: How Many Have 28 Days?

Have you ever stopped to wonder how many months have 28 days? It's an interesting question, isn't it? Well, we all know that February has only 28 days in common years and 29 in leap years.

Let's start with the obvious ones, shall we? Everyone knows which are these so-called obvious months.

  • January
  • March
  • May
  • July
  • August
  • October
  • December

Now that we've counted together how many months contain twenty-eight dark hol--- sorry --I mean HOW MANY MONTHS HAVE TWENTY-EIGHT DAYS, we can rest easy, right?

Now you know how many months of the year have 28 days. Remember that knowledge, because someday you might impress someone at a party with your newfound trivia!
