Encyclopedia > Adar 1

Adar (אֲדָר, Standard Hebrew Adar, Tiberian Hebrew ʾĂḏār: from Akkadian adaru) is the sixth month of the ecclesiastical year and the twelfth month of the civil year on the Hebrew calendar. It is a winter month of 29 days. In leap years, it is preceded by a 30_day month named Adar Alef, Adar Rishon or Adar I and it is then itself called Adar Shenei or Adar II. Occasionally instead of Adar I and Adar II, "Adar" and "Veadar" are used.

Adar (אֲדָר, Standard Hebrew Adar, Tiberian Hebrew ʾĂḏār: from Akkadian adaru) is the sixth month of the religious year and the twelfth month of the civil year on the Hebrew calendar.
Occasionally instead of Adar I and Adar II, "Adar" and "Veadar" are used (Ve means 'and' thus: And Adar).
In a non leap year both children have their birthday in Adar - the second twin on the first of the month, and the first twin 29 days later on the 30th.
Leap year - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1557 words)
In the Hebrew calendar the extra month is called Adar Alef (first Adar) and is added before Adar, which then becomes Adar Sheni (second Adar).
This suggests that the calendar needs to be improved by another refinement to the leap year rule: perhaps by avoiding leap years in years divisible by 8,000.
There are many instances in children's literature where a person's claim to be only a quarter of their actual age turns out be based on counting their leap-year birthdays.
