#350-Ode to January
Came across this quote today-
by January the thought of making merry brings an inward groan: "do I have to have any more fun?"
Well I like Wikipedia, although I still keep several old encyclopedias around. Wiki tells us about January:
January is named for Janus (Ianuarius), the god of the doorway; the name has its beginnings in Roman mythology, where the Latin word for door (ianua) comes from - January is the door to the year.
Tells us lots more too. :) Only a few more days left before February's turn. People on a cooking forum are eagerly anticipating baking with heart shapes...
First though, we need to close the door on Janus.
PS: And for the child in me:
In January it's so nice
While slipping on the sliding ice
To sip hot chicken soup with rice.
