It was the ninth month of the year
November is well underway. Did you know that November’s name comes from the word «novem,» which means «nine» in Latin. It was the ninth month of the year in ancient Rome, but on modern calendars it is the eleventh month. King Numa Pompilius decreed that it would only have 29 days, but the 30th day was restored under the reign of Julius Caesar.
