The original concepts of months came from the motions of of the moon and can be traced back to the Palaeolithic age (or Old Stone Age).
7 months have 31 days and 4 have 30. The shortest month is February which has 28 days and 29 in a leap year which occurs every 4 years. The next leap year is 2020.
Leap years occur to help keep the calendar year as we know it synchronized as the number of synodic months do not fit fully in to a full year.
