Although numerous Germanic and Slavic languages call their months in the same or similar way (as they all derive from Latin names), months in Polish and English are very different. Slavic month names have roots in different native languages and influences of different cultures they came in touch with during the course of time.

There are numerous children’s rhymes, verses and songs that talk about months, as well as popular sayings. One of them is: ‘’kwiecień, plecień,bo przeplata, trochę zimy trochę lata’’ (talking about how April likes to mix things up - a little bit of summer, a little bit of winter…)
