The name April is derived from the latin word aperit, which means to open. April is considered the month of the growing season and when trees and flowers begin to “open”.
April is the first of four months to have a length of 30 days.
The tenth month, October shares its root with octopus and octagon—the Latin octo and Greek okto, meaning “eight.” The original Roman calendar had only ten months, and October was the eighth month. It has 31 days.
Blank pages have been added to each month for recording important dates and events. Kids can also record their successes and bright ideas in journal fashion.
We have created and added each month's definition for easy reference.
