The most wonderful time of the year has arrived!
December may be the last month* of the year but it is my favourite month. At the heart of winter, is full of celebrations and family gatherings, story telling moments next to fire and bonding time between people. In other words, we just love December!
December got its name from the Latin word decem (meaning ten) because it was originally the tenth month of the year in the Roman calendar, which began in March. The winter days following December were not included as part of any month. Later, the months of January and February were created out of the monthless period and added to the beginning of the calendar, but December retained its name.
*December is the twelfth and last month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian Calendars. It is the seventh and last month to have the length of 31 days.
