The Month of December
You already know that December is the last month of the year. But did you know that it also used to be the tenth month? You see, prior to 153 BCE the format of the calendar used was known as the Roman calendar. In the Roman Calendar, the year began with March and ended with December. Therefore, the months of January and February did not exist. In fact, their days weren’t even numbered.
Knowing that December used to be the tenth month of the year makes a lot of sense when you break down its name. Have you ever seen the prefix “dec” before? What about a DECagon, a ten-sided figure? That’s right, in Latin “dec” means ten. Therefore, the month of December was originally named after the number ten. However, even when the month became the twelfth month of the year, the name still stuck.
Another fun fact regarding December is the weather. While north of the equator December is the month that kicks off the cold winter months, this is not so in the southern hemisphere. Believe it or not, in countries south of the equator, December is the beginning of warm, summer months!
