WELCOME TO DECEMBER 2007!
I thank you all for the suggestions again! You’re always very helpful! As for the title, I am not multilingual. I used AltaVista to translate the month of December into French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Greek and Chinese-trad (which I took to mean Traditional Chinese). Fun stuff.
Anyway, here are more things for December and then we’ll get to the holidays!
Sagittarius: November 22 – December 21
Capricorn: December 22 – January 19
Blue Topaz or Turquoise (modern)
Zircon, Turquoise, or Lapis Lazuli (traditional)
The Narcissus stands for self-love.
Other December Observances Include:
Safe Toys and Gifts Month
Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month (US National)
Stress Free Family Holiday Month (US National)
Read A New Book Month
