Calendar

December is the last month of the year in both the Julian and Gregorian calendar. It consists of 31 days and on its 31st day the year comes to an end. The name December was derived from the Latin word “Decem” which meant the number ten. In the ancient Roman calendar, there had been initially only ten months in a year as against the present twelve months. Since December has always been the final month in a year, it had ranked ten in the olden days. The name December was assigned to it to denote its old tenth rank in the serial order of all the months. However, even after subsequent inclusion of two months January and February in Julian calendar, the name December has come to be permanently adopted for usage. In the month of December, winter solstice is observed in northern hemisphere, a phenomenon where days of fewest day hours occurs  and summer solstice is noticed  in southern hemisphere when days of longest day hours are seen. December in the northern hemisphere is the seasonal counterpart to June in southern hemisphere and vice versa.
