How to Remember the Number of Days in the Months

If you have trouble remembering how many days each month has, there’s an easier way than remembering the famous rhyme Thirty Days Hath September.  As long as you know that February has 28 days (except for leap year), you just have to learn the first two lines in bold below.  Then know that the rest have 31 days.

Thirty days hath September,
April, June, and November;
February has twenty-eight alone,
All the rest have thirty-one,
Excepting leap-year, that’s the time
When February’s days are twenty-nine.
