I’m nonetheless having a little bit of a tough time accepting the truth that it’s 2023 already. What occurred to final yr? It’s all a blur! Time flies, little question. The older I get, the quicker it goes.
January is called after the Roman god Janus—the god of latest beginnings and transitions. Initially, the Roman calendar didn’t embrace January or February. As a substitute, winter was a month-less span of days, with the months starting in March.
The primary 4 months initially have been March (month of Mars), April (month of Aphrodite), Could (month of Maia) and June (month of Juno). After that, every month was merely given a quantity. July was once Quintilis—the fifth month—till Julius Caesar named it after himself. August was Sextilis—the sixth month—till Augustus Caesar claimed it. September, regardless of now being the ninth month, merely means the seventh month—October the eighth, November the ninth and December the tenth.
In Saxon languages, January was referred to as Wulf-monath, which implies ‘wolf month’ and in Charlemagne’s empire, it was known as Wintarmanoth, or ‘winter month.’ I quite just like the Finnish phrase for it: tammikuu, which implies ‘the heard of the winter’ and in addition ‘oak moon.’ The total moon that happens in January is known as the wolf moon.
It’s all very wintry and chilly and darkish, however pretty as effectively.
