February

Summary
February is the second month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian calendars. The month has 28 days in common years or 29 in leap years, with the 29th day being called the leap day. It is the first of five months not to have 31 days (the other four being April, June, September, and November) and the only one to have fewer than 30 days. February is the third and last month of meteorological winter in the Northern Hemisphere. In the Southern Hemisphere, February is the third and last month of meteorological summer (being the seasonal equivalent of what is August in the Northern Hemisphere). Pronunciation "February" is pronounced in several different ways. The beginning of the word is commonly pronounced either as ˈfɛbju- or ˈfɛbru- ; many people drop the first "r", replacing it with j, as if it were spelled "Febuary". This comes about by analogy with "January" (ˈdʒæn.ju-), as well as by a dissimilation effect whereby having two "r"s close to each other causes one to change
