DECEMBER

 I love December not only because its is my birth month but because my Savior was born.

 The Virgin Mary, pregnant with the son of God, would hence have given birth to Jesus nine months later on the winter solstice. From Rome, the Christ's Nativity celebration spread to other Christian churches to the west and east, and soon most Christians were celebrating Christ's birth on December 25.

December is the last month in the Gregorian calendar. Its name is based on the Latin term for ten.
