The Month of May

May is the fifth month of the year. There are several stories about how this month was named. According to one story, May was named after Maia, the Roman goddess of spring and growth.

In older versions of the ancient Roman calendar, May was the third month of the year. It became the fifth month when January and February were added to the calendar.

There are 31 days in May and it does not start or end on the same day of the week as any other month.

In parts of the Northern Hemisphere, May is one of the most beautiful months of the year. The days are warmer and the flowers are in bloom. In the Southern Hemisphere, the days are getting colder.

The Full Moon of May is known as the Flower Moon, named after the blooming flowers in the Northern Hemisphere, where these traditional Full Moon Names originated.

In ancient times, it was common to track the changing seasons by following the lunar month rather than the solar year, which the 12 months in our modern calendar are based on.
