    January is named for the Roman god Janus, who had two faces, one on the back of his head. He could therefore look in two opposite directions, and symbolised looking back at the year that had just ended and the new one just beginning.

    September = 7th month
    October = 8th month
    November = 9th month
    December = 10th month

    The addition of July (Julius Ceaser) and August (Augutus Ceaser) threw the calender off.
