### A Year

# A Year

A year is the time it takes for the Earth to go around the Sun once.

There are lots of things that happen exactly one year apart:

On your birthday, it is exactly one year until your next birthday.

On Anzac Day (the 25th of April), it is exactly one year until the next Anzac Day.

On New Year's Day (the 1st of January), it is exactly one year until the next New Year's Day.

On Halloween (the 31st of October), it is exactly one year until the next Halloween.

Years have

- \(365\) days (unless they are leap years, when they have \(366\) days)
- \(12\) months: January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November and December.
- Just over \(52\) weeks
- \(2\) seasons (the rainy and dry Seasons) if you live in the tropics, and \(4\) seasons (Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter) everywhere else.

Each year starts on New Year's Day (the 1st of January) and ends on New Year's Eve (the 31st of December).

The calendar below shows every day of the year \(2018\). \(2018\) is **not** a leap year.

#### Fun Facts

Did you know that each planet of our solar system has its own year? It is the time it takes that planet to go once around the Sun. They all have different lengths.

For example,

- One Martian Year is \(687\) days long.
- A year on Mercury only lasts \(88\) days.
- A year on Venus is \(225\) days long.
- A year on Neptune is equivalent to about 165 years on Earth, because Neptune is so far from the Sun.
