This one is short, so bear with me. There are twelve months, right? We all agree on that. But, here’s where a little bit of knowledge over conformity really matters.
September, October, November, and December translate to seventh month, eighth month, ninth month, and tenth month, respectively. So, if there are twelve months, and December is the tenth, then the new year doesn’t begin for another two months. The last month is (No, it can’t be. That makes too much sense.) the shortest one.
Now, people have told me that I’m wrong because July and August (named after Julius and Augustus Caeser, respectively) were thrown into the middle to keep the seasons the same, but if I were wrong, then they would have renamed September through December so they no longer called themselves the seventh through tenth months. The way I see it, this is like if someone gives you directions to drive straight down the street, and take a left at the third light after the city built two lights between what used to be the second and third. They wanted you to take a left at what was now the fifth light, but they were still calling it the third.
So, as long as we have a December, it’s going to be the tenth month. This is not up for debate. This is just the way it is. It’s been semantically proven. If you continue to call me wrong after reading this evidence, you’re just a moron who puts conformity above provable facts. If it were agreed that it were proper to wear a codfish on your head, you would do it. So, happy NOT new year to you, too.
