December is the twelfth and last month of the year. It is also the last in this series. If you want to read about any other month of the year then click the word ‘Months’ in the Categories in the column on the right.

December used to be the tenth month and the word ‘decem’ is the Latin word for ten. When January and February were later added December became month number twelve.

December’s flower is the holly and its birthstone is the turquoise (which happens to be my favourite colour!).
