Early Roman Calendar

In 8th Century BCE, when the Romulus Calendar was used, there were only 10 months, with January and February missing. Each month had either 30 or 31 days.

Winter months weren’t counted as planters and harvesters didn't care for those unproductive, cold months, resulting in 61 days of non-calendared time, and years with only 304 days.

Introducing January And February In Calendars

In 713 BCE, King Numa Pompilius introduced two new months, January and February, added to the end of the Calendar.

As February was the last month on the list, it ended up being short (28 days) while other months were also modified to be either 29 or 31 days.
