Desktop Wallpaper Calendar — August 2020 — Free to Download

August is the eighth month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian calendars, and the fifth of seven months to have a length of 31 days. Formerly named Sextilis, it was originally the sixth month in the ten-month Roman calendar. It became the eighth month around 700 BC, when King Numa Pompilius added January and February to the beginning of the calendar year; he also made the month 29 days long. Julius Caesar later added two days when he created the Julian calendar in 46 BC, giving it its modern length of 31 days. In 8 BC, it was renamed to August to honor the great triumphs of the Roman Emperor Augustus.
