    Monthly Knuckles

    I have never been able to remember or make use of the little ditty that others use to remember how many days there are in each month. Instead I use my knuckles when I want to quickly determine how many days a particular month has [and I have done for many years]

    Today I saw that someone had posted a reply on another forum [the reply referenced another website] about this method. I found it surprising that others were not aware of it. I post a link to the referenced website here and ask do you use the same method/had you heard of it?

    Edit: The ditty:

    Thirty days hath September,
    April, June, and November;
    All the rest have thirty-one,
    Save February, with twenty-eight days clear,
    And twenty-nine each leap year.

    I've always used the ditty to remember it, but will be using the knuckle method from now on - simply as I've never seen it before and it's quite impressive (which I possibly shouldn't admit!)
