April (Apr) is the fourth month of the Gregorian calendar, following March and preceding May. It is one of four months with a length of 30 days long and the second of five months to have a length of less than 31 days.
April is commonly associated with the season of spring in the Northern hemisphere and autumn in the Southern hemisphere, where it is the seasonal equivalent to October in the Northern hemisphere and vice versa. April starts on the same day of the week as July in all years, and January in leap years. April ends on the same day of the week as December every year.
History of Name
The Romans gave this month the Latin name Aprilis but the derivation of this name is uncertain. The name is rooted in the Latin Aprilis which is derived from the Latin aperire meaning "to open" - which could be a reference to the opening or blossoming of flowers and trees, a common occurrence throughout the month of April in the Northern Hemisphere.
April was the second month of the earliest Roman calendar, before Ianuarius and Februarius were added by King Numa Pompilius about 700 BC. It became the fourth month of the calendar year (the year when twelve months are displayed in order) during the time of the decemvirs about 450 BC, when it also was given 29 days. The 30th day was added during the reform of the calendar undertaken by Julius Caesar in the mid-40s BC, which produced the Julian calendar.
April's birthstone is the diamond.
