The longest month depends on where you
live and in some places it's 31 days.
In the western hemisphere a leap second is added at the end of December and
in the eastern hemisphere in January making both months 31 days and 1 second
long when they are added.
The actual world's longest month clocks in at 31 days 1 hour due to reverting
from daylight saving time.
In most of Europe this occurs in September and since September has only 30
days they do not experience the longest month.
America (except for a few states), Britain,
Canada and other countries DST ends in October making October the world's
longest month, but not the only one.
In Australia DST ends in March giving it an extra hour and
a tie for the world's longest month.
In 2007 many countries, including America, will be
extending DST till November, which has only 30 days, so the longest month will not apply.
