Vember is finally over!

We get 30 days of respite, starting today.


@Coffee In Finnish, the month that began today is called "marraskuu", "marras" being an ancient Finnish name for the mythical personification of Death. Meaning we have now entered the month of Death. (I think the name is somehow etymologically linked to the old Latin "mort", although I could be wrong.)

Interesting, thanks. I guess it makes sense. Everything outside is dying right now.

Of course, "november" simply refers to being the ninth month, but I like to pretend there are just 2 months: Vember and No-vember.
