Number of days in each month – Tricks

Here is a little trick you can easily use to determine the number of days in every month.

Put out your left hand (palm down like the picture below) and put the 5 fingers together to make a firm fist, and there are some ‘ups and downs’ on the back of your hand, the ups are the months with relatively more days (31 days), the downs are months which have relatively less days (less than 31 days).

Count from the very left using your finger on the right hand, and each number is a month, for instance 1 is for January, 2 is February, 3 is March, and then all the way to 7.. 7 is July.


The ups are these numbers in the pic: 1, 3, 5 and 7, they have 31 days in each month; and the downs are number 2, 4 and 6 with less days than 31 days. But how many days in them exactly? Check out this article for more info.
