Monthly Trivia: February

The month of February

The month February, originally “Februarius” was named after the Latin term “februum”, which means purification, via the purification ritual Februa held on February 15 (full moon) in the old lunar Roman calendar. January and February were the last two months to be added to the Roman calendar, since the Romans originally considered winter a monthless period.

February is known in other Languages as:

Februar – Danish
