A month is a portion of a year corresponding roughly to the passage of the earth round the moon (a 'lunar month', of which there are, in fact, thirteen). There are twelve terrestrial months in the Gregorian Calendar. They are named after pagan gods and goddesses (January, February, March, April, May, June, August), Roman emperors (July, August) and numbers (September-December incl.). The number of days varies, but a handy way to remember which is which is:

Thirty days hath September
April, June, and November
All the rest have thirty-one
Except for February alone
Which has twenty-eight days clear
And twenty-nine in each leap year.
