February is the second month of the year and the shortest with only 28 days, unless leap year gives it 29. It is the third month of winter in the Northern Hemisphere but the last month of summer in the Southern. The name of the month comes from the Latin word “februum” which means purification. Along with January, it is one of the last two months added to the Roman calendar.

The birthstone of February is amethyst , birth flowers are violets and primroses and the zodiac sign is Aquarius up to February 19 and Pisces beyond that date.
