March 21 was New Years day until the Julian Calender came along.
As a kid I always wondered what Sept' ember was the 9th month Oct' ober the 10th
month and Nov and Dec respectively .
Whoa Thank you... I've been bringing this up to my girlfriend a lot lately and couldn't figure it out.
It keeps coming up because she is teaching 3 year olds, and I keep referring to them as speaking another language and I try my best to work her though
her emotions and experiences to figure out what the kids mean..
So.. I often equate it to foreign languages.. And inevitably I start talking about lunes being spanish for "moon day" Monday.. And Martes, is Mars
day, is tuesday (2s day) and then wesnesday miercules is mercury...
the months come up a lot and in my timid research on this subject, I notice novembre is 9. Diez is deciembre..
Didn't realize all the numbers of months made sense if you start on March.
AND why the heck does the year not start when spring starts?? Winter is death, and Spring is life... Summer is maturity, and fall is the fall....
