The Month of May
While you might not realize it, May was not always the fifth month of the year. Although the twelve month structured calendar we use today has January as the first month of the year and May as the fifth, it wasn’t this way in ancient times. In Ancient Rome, March started the year as the first month, making May the third. This is because the ancient Romans believed the year should begin with the warm weather of spring.
May always, however, had 31 days and always fell in the spring season. This aligns with where the month got it’s name from as well: The Roman Goddess of fertility, Maia. Because, as we all know, spring is the season that brings with it fertile land and new life.
