The Month of August in United States
August is the eighth month of each year as per the currently followed Gregorian calendar. It has 31 days. July-August is the only pair of consecutive months in a single year which has same number of days.
August got its name from the first emperor of the Roman empire, Augustus Caesar. Earlier, its original name was Sextilis in Latin. In the ancient Roman calendar, it was the 6th month of each year and hence the name Sextilis. Later, it was changed to August in honor of the great Augustus Caesar around 8 BCE.
In the ancient Roman calendar also, when its name was Sextilis, August had 31 days. Later, it became the eighth month of each year instead of sixth month but with a length of only 29 days. This happened when January and February became the starting months of year and joined the calendar. In 45 BCE, Julius Caesar added 2 more days to the month to make it a month with 31 days. After 37 years, it was given a new name “August” in honor of Augustus Caesar in 8 BCE.
