Can we blame it on the Romans, specifically a Roman king named - Pompilius Numa, who established the basic Roman calendar in 8th century BC, which only had TEN month as at then, so to keep Roman calendar in syn with the luna one, Numa added TWO new month which are JANUARY and FEBRUARY!

HaPpY new month Steemians!
