The year 2020 is getting closer to the end. And this year, there is one single thing that all people in the world have something in common. It is the Coronavirus. It happens in almost all countries in the world. But the good news is, this year is going to end. And another good news is, the vaccine for the virus has been discovered. So, the year 2021 hopefully will not be worse. But, we still have four days left to go through this year. Then, we will begin the journey of the 366 days of 2021. And in the end, there will be 31 days awaiting in December of 2021.
There is one universal and important date in December. It is Christmas Day. Other than that, there are some festivals and several important dates that happen in December every year. The very first day of December, the 1st is celebrated by the global citizen as the World AIDS day. The 5th of December is also stated as the International Volunteer Day. Then, the 9th and 10th of December is commemorated as the International Anti-Corruption Day and Human Rights Day. The 15th of December is celebrated as International Tea Day. Then, after the 25th of December as Christmas, the 31st of December as the New Year’s Eve.
There are some celebrations that also happen in February each year, those are World Cancer Day on the 4th, Valentine’s Day on the 14th, or International Mother Language Day. Those are rather less than the other months. It is because February has fewer days. For the incoming year of 2021, February will have the usual number of days. After the leap year that happens this year, February 2021 will have only 28 eight days. The leap year is a calendar that has additional days to make it synchronized with the astronomical calendar. It happens every four years. Because this year, 2020, is the leap year, then the next leap year will be in 2024. So, in the next three years, February will have 28 days.
Most period of the time people will get their salary is monthly or annually. But, for some other people, they will get their salary weekly. For the next decade, there are only two years which have five times of five-weeks months. Those years are 2021 and 2027. The other years of the next decade only have four times five-week months. For those who have the salary weekly, you will get the most money in January, April, July, October, and December. It is because those months have five weeks.
