How many days are there in May?

The month of May has 31 Days. Here you can find out the length of all months in days and memory aids.


The term month comes from the word "Moon" since one month roughly corresponds to one moon phase (29.5 days). The twelve Months result in one year - the time it takes the earth to orbit the sun once. A year has 365 or 366 days.

Most months have 31 days, followed by 30 days - February has 28 or 29 days (leap year) to correct the earth's mean period (365.2425 days) around the sun.

Reminder: How many days are there in a month?

We found the following little donkey bridge on the Internet:

November has 30 days,
with April, June and September.
At 28 only one follows
and the others have 31.

... in English it rhymes a little better:

Thirty days have September,
April, June and November.
All the rest have 31,
except February which has 28.

Hand knuckles donkey bridge

With the knuckle donkey bridge, it works like this:

You just start with the first ankle, then the deepening follows, then the ankle again, etc. The first knuckle is January, the deepening February (28 or 29 days) etc. - except for February, all deepening means 30 days.
