Julius Caesar

It wasn’t until Julius Caesar came to power that people observed a 355 day calendar, with an extra 22 day month. This was a problem because it caused the feast days to fall under different seasons. Caesar ordered his astronomer, Sosigenes to simplify things. Soseignes then made a 365 day year, with an extra day every 4 years. Thus, February 29th was born.
