Challenges - December Challenge
I have been persuaded to put in another Challenge ..... please do make comments or suggestions on the content. Somebody else's turn in January!
Tag: December Challenge
December gets its name from the Latin word decem (meaning ten) because it was originally the tenth month of the year in the Roman calendar, which began in March. The winter days following December were not included as part of any month. Later, the months of January and February were created out of the monthless period and added to the beginning of the calendar, but December retained its name. In the Northern Hemisphere, December is the first month of meteorological winter and the month with the shortest daylight hours – opposites apply for the Southern Hemisphere. December starts on the same day of the week as September every year and ends on the same day of the week as April every year; it is one of seven months with the length of 31 days.
Each Challenge Week includes:
Mono Monday, a number, a colour, a point of view, a size or shape, light and something random; each Thursday’s category could also be combined with Derelict Thursday.
Feel free to mix things around to suit you.
