February is time for new beginnings
Why are there 28 days in February? A legend states that Emperor Augustus stole a day from February to add it to the month after him, but this probably isn’t true. The real reason is because originally there were only 10 months. The Romans added two new months (January and February) so that the calendar would match the Moon more accurately, but they had to cut one month otherwise the calendar would fall out of sync, so they cut February.
Whilst January is known as the time for fresh starts and new beginnings, there’s nothing to stop you from starting afresh in January. For most of us, this has been a tough month, so let’s take some time to pause and reflect on January and look to the month ahead.
