Today is the 1st of the September. It is the 9th month of 2010. The other day I started thinking about the English spelling of the last 4 months of the year:
Definitely a pattern here. But how come all of our months appear to be two short of their numerical order in our calendar year? This I did not know but a little research revealed the answer! I find it beyond interesting that the calendar we use today stems back to a decision made 2263 years ago!!! Some things in life change but clearly others do not at all.
