August is named after the Roman emperor Octavian Augustus. July is named after the Roman statesman and military leader Julius Caesar. October is from the latin octo, in ancient Rome was the eight month of the year. September, to my mind, is from the latin word septem(seven). Originally, in ancient Rome was the seventh month of the year. I don’t know any about November. So I think, that November was the ninth month of the year. December is from the latin decombre(ten). Originally, in ancient Rome it was the tenth month of the year. January is named in honor of the god of time Janus. So, February is from the latin words Februarius(month of purification). The name is associated with a religious holiday. Held in Rome on 15th February. March is on behalf the Roman god of war Mars. April is from the latin word aperire(open). At this time the earth is opened for growth. Maybe, May is on behalf of the Roman goddess of spring Maya. Julian calendar The reform of the calendar held in 46 BC Roman high priest, soldier and writer, Gaius Julius Caesar. The basis of the calendar, later called Julian, put solar year, the duration of which was taken to be 365.25 days. But in a calendar year may be only an integer number of days. Therefore instructed to take three out of every four years for 365 days, in the fourth - 366 days. Gregorian calendar Calendar reform implemented Pope Gregory XIII on the basis of the draft Italian physician and mathematician Luigi Lilio. The spring equinox was moved to March 21, in its place. And that mistake in the future to accumulate, it decided out of every 400 years, throwing for three days. Such a system is called the Gregorian, or "new style". In contrast to her for the Julian calendar solidified the name "old style" Weather in seasons In the autumn, children go to school, so we see them upset, but happy faces.
