Did You Know?
October, derived from the Latin Octo, which means eight, was actually the eighth month of the year in the original Roman calendar of ten months. It wasn’t until the Julian calendar was introduced by Julius Caesar in the first century BC that January and February were added. The Julian calendar remained the predominant calendar in Europe through the sixteenth century, until it was amended to the Gregorian calendar we still use today.
