Many people in our country have happy thoughts about "ber" months. It will start tomorrow at our end, since it is August 31 now. "Ber" months are months ending in "ber" like September, November, and December. For us, "ber" months indicate that Christmas season is nearing and many employed people expect bonuses to be given as early as November. Of course, we observe All Souls/All Saints Day first on November 1 and 2, which are occasions when families gather together to visit the graves of relatives. Are you happy also for the "ber" months?

At least it provides some break from the usual activities, and from boredom.

@acelawrites I just noticed that we had been getting rainy ber months in the past few years, think even the season is changing due to climate change.

I don't know, probably not because it's the beginning of the end for this year. That means you're going to be one year older lol and I don't have planned gifts to my nephews and niece.

Oh haha I was wondering what "ber" meant. Any month is good for me as long as its not a "brrr" month!
