Why, you ask. Why? Well, I shall tell you why. But first ...

Watch Taylor sing "Back to December".

Or, for a radical change of pace, Merle Haggard's "If We Make it to December'

You can also choose your own from a wide variety of sources.

And, now why is December so WeIrD?  Er, weird?This happens once every 823 years.

This month there are five Saturdays, five Sundays and five Mondays.

Yay, an extra weekend. Boo, an extra Monday. Yay, the last Monday is Christmas Eve.

It may be weird, but I love it.

Dandy December!

We'll do it again in 2835.

But, I just remembered, the world is to end this month.
