Encyclopedia > February 31

February 30 and February 31, with regard to the modern Western (revised Gregorian) calendar, are imaginary dates that are used for example purposes, to make it clear regardless of context that the information being presented is an artificial example and not real data. In this respect, these "dates" are similar to other clearly fictional data used for similar purposes, such as "John Q. Public", "Jane Doe", "Anytown, U.S.", "(123) 555-9876", "123 No Such Street". February 30 occurs in some calendars, unlike the Gregorian calendar, where February contains only 28 or 29 days. ... The Gregorian calendar is the most widely used calendar in the world. ...
