First of all I want to give you the background to December as I promised. something you probably didn’t know.Unlike most months, December happens to be one of the richest months in the year if not the most as far as history is concerned. It has a very beautiful and a reflective background that one could think of. It is the seventh month that has in it 31 days; how about that? December is the twelfth month in the Julian and Gregorian calendar, the last month of the year. December had it name from the Latin word, Decem which meant tenth. December happened to be the tenth month in the Romulus calendar in 750bc which began in March. The simple reason to this was that there was no month given to the times of winter in those era. Later, the months January and February were created out of the monthly period and added to the beginning of the year. Nonetheless December still retained it name though being the twelfth month.
