December the Janus-faced month
December is already part of next year. The genuine Janus-faced month isn’t January but the inaccurately monikered “tenth” month of our twelve-month calendar. In other words, December is a forward-looking month, a month turned towards the future. Think of it, by the time December 1st rolls around, one’s sights are already set towards the end of the month with its time of feasts and holidays. The month as a whole can be seen as one long build-up for the main events that take place during the last week of the month.

November is the month of memory. Beginning in the wake of All Soul’s Day when families remember the dearly departed, by month’s end Americans will have made the traditional gesture of giving thanks to those, both past and present, worthy of memory. Near the middle of the month lies Remembrance Day, or as the French directly call it, “l’onze novembre”. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the peace treaty, but who could doubt by now that a century is not nearly enough to process all that took place between 1914 and 1918? Thus the need we have of memory for the further the events fade into the past, the more we are left to wonder what it is we are trying to recollect in the first place.
