How to Remember the Months with 31 Days

Learn how to remember which months have 31 days in this Howcast video about memory techniques featuring memory expert Barry Reitman.


Hi, I'm Barry Wrightman, author of "Secrets, Tips and Tricks of a Powerful Memory, and I'm here to discuss a question that you may have; how to remember which months have 30 days or which months have whatever number of days? The simple answer is still the best; most of us learned it when we were four or five or six years old, but just to review in case you didn't, I don't know anything better.

Simple little rhyme scheme: 30 days has September, April, June and November. Once you've gotten that little rhyme together, the rest falls into place, and I won't necessarily do it right now in the rhyme scheme, but everything else has 31 except February, and you're familiar with February it's a short month with 28 days, 29 in leap year. So, once I've said 30 days has September, April, June, and November by default, I know every single month.
