March is a weird word for a month.

Only marginally less odd that it comes from the name of the Roman god of war! Winter's over lads, get back to it

It's not like many of them make much sense. February is just a weird word altogether, while September, October, November and December are based on the Latin for seven, eight, nine and ten, respectively. All very plainspoken and orderly you might think. But they're months 9 through 12.

The numerical discrepancy is because the calendar ours is based on originally only had ten months in it so when they inserted two new ones it got all messed up. Why did they add them at beginning and mess up the count? They didn't! Originally New Year's Day was March 1st and January and February were at the end of the year.

Two weeks till my Montanaversary — on March 15, 2023, my wife and I got on a plane from Newark to Kalispell (via Salt Lake City). Can't believe it's been a whole year. We fucking love it so much here, too.
