Why Do We Have 12 Months in a Yera?

Answer

The months were originally introduced to follow the cycles of the Moon, the second most visible body in the sky. In contrast, both days and years are based on the apparent movement of the Earth around the Sun. The lunar month does not correspond to an exact number of days, it varies continuously and on average lasts about 29 days 12h 44 min 2.8s. Rapidly, the ancients adopted alternating months of 29 and 30 days, with an extra day every 30 months to account for the 44 min. The year was then 12 months or 354 days.
