Default An Imperial Year Has 13 Months.

In another thread, the length of an Imperial month was mentioned in passing to another subject. I knew that I'd seen something about the length of a month somewhere in Classic Traveller canon, and this is what I've found:
"... Weeks of seven days and months of 28 days are used to refer to lengths of time, but rarely to establish dates...
Reference: CT S08 Supplement 08 Library Data A-M; 1980; pages 22-23, "Dating Systems".
...Weeks of seven days and months of about 28 days are used to refer to lengths of time, but rarely to establish dates...
Reference: CT S12 Supplement 12 "Forms & Charts"; 1983; pages 46-47, "Imperial Calendar".

QED: An Imperial year of 365 days, divided into months of 28 days, will have 13 months!

As a side note, the remaining day is "Holiday", which I imagine to be celebrated on Capital as sort of a blend of New Year's Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day, with drinking, feasting, fireworks, and gift exchanges.
"Keklas! What is your payoff in playing the role of Referee?"
"To challenge my friends, to see them playing before me, and to hear the lamentations of their characters."
