Happy December, all! It occurs to me that Ramadan is either here, or going to be here soon. Anyone care to share with us?



Ignore this; your moderator is an idiot. I apoligize if I offended anyone. >.>

I'm not Muslism nor am I converting in that direction, so by all means correct me, but I thought Ramadan was done? I think in the Northern hemisphere, the ninth lunar month in the Islamic calendar is headed toward summer occurrences.

Judaism's holidays would follow the same fluctuations throughout the generations but we add a month, Adar I, every three years or so to our calendars. In this sense, we are a lunisolar calendar because our years follow the tropical movements and our months follow lunar movements. We make up the difference by adding a month every now and then.
