Well the headline might seems strange to you, in order to satisfy your curiosity, you can google search more info about this, but here is a brief reason why 11 days we're missing in the September 1752 calendar.
So, the king of England as at then ordered that 11 days to be wiped off the face of that particular month. Consequently, the workers worked for 11 days less than that month but got paid for the whole month, that how the concept of "paid leave" was born.
In the Roman Julian calendar, April used to be the first month of the year, but the Greogrian calendar observed January as the first month, even after shifting to the Greogrian calendar, many people refused to give up old traditions and continued celebrating 1st April as new year day, when simple orders didn't work, the king then issued a royal dictum which starred that :those who celebrated April 1st as new year day would henceforth be labeled as fools, from then on April 1st became fools day
