No TGIF for January

Thank God It's Friday Logo

A Month of Beginnings

January (in Latin, Ianuarius) is named after Janus, the god of beginnings and transitions in Roman mythology.

Traditionally, the original Roman calendar consisted of 10 months totalling 304 days. Winter being considered a month-less period. Around 713 BC, Pompilius, is supposed to have added the months of January and February. So that the calendar covered a standard lunar year (354 days).

Here in Stinchcombe

After much thought, we have decided to revert to the calendar before 713BC and not hold a TGIF until … things get a bit better.
