August History

August was called ‘Sextilis’ in the original Roman calendar because it was the sixth month of the year. January and February were added later to the calendar and bumped August to the eighth month of the year. In 45 BC, Julius Caesar came along and created the Julian calendar. Caesar decided August needed a couple more days so he made it 31 instead of 29 days. Eventually someone realized ‘Sextilis’ didn’t really make sense anymore and the month got a name change to ‘Augustus’ in honor of Caesar Augustus, the first emperor of Rome. Can you imagine the jokes if August was still called ‘Sextilis?!’
