Monþs and Holidays

From The Anglish (Anglisc) Wiki

This is a somewhat silly article about the months and their holidays. It is supposed to be reminiscent of the writings of medieval authors who felt the need to impose regularity and order where it did not actually exist. This text prefers native English words over Old Norse loanwords.
