We are currently in the Old Icelandic Month of sÃ³lmÃ¡nuÃ°ur, which translates as "sun month". Each month was exactly 30 days long, but that only accounted for 360 days. This was because each month always started on the same week day.
The next month is sumarauki, or "Summer Extra". This year it is only 4 days long. That gives a total of 364 days. So every 6 or 7 years the old Icelandic calendar had a "leap week" to get back on track with the gregorian calendar.
