maggie graphic for webMarch Madness, April Showers, May Flowers, the Dog Days of August, and Mr. October are just a few seasonal references that come to mind.

Just for fun, comment with a new monthly name. The answer list is as long as your imagination! Maybe you’ll do better than June Bugs, November Remembers, or September School Daze.

  2. Allergy April, Delightful Decembber

    • maggietoussaint says

      I love it! Allergy April better have some rain this year to knock down the pollen count. And December is Delightful indeed. Who doesn’t like presents?

  3. Based on our weather here in the Colorado Rockies, I’d go with March Mayhem.

    • maggietoussaint says

      March Mayhem. That explains a lot about how I’ve felt this month. Must be something in the air!

  4. Freaky February, because if you live in the northern land of ice and snow, you may be freaking out from the dreary weather by February.

    • maggietoussaint says

      I like your thinking, Nancy. Sunshine is the cure for winter blahs, or at least it is for me!

  5. June Juxtapositions, April Aspirations, February Fascinations, December Destination, I am not sure what you want, I hope these will make you smile. Thank you for your giveaway.

  6. How about July Jazz in honor of the Montreal Jazz Festival?(It actually starts at the end of June, but what the heck?)

    • maggietoussaint says

      July Jazz sounds fantastic. Oftentimes many cities have Jazz in the Park in the summer. I think this one has universal appeal!

  7. maggietoussaint says

    I forgot to mention it in the post. This contest stays open through March 30, so keep ’em coming!

  8. Moon in June, July Skies, September School, October Frights, November Football, December Elves, March Winds, Maypole May, June Bride,

    • maggietoussaint says

      Wow, Jonnie! Such a lot of great responses. I may have a tough time selecting a favorite from your list. All of them are so evocative. Hmm. Lemme see. I think I’ll go with June Bride as my fav of your suggestions! Thanks for commenting and entering my drawing.

  9. November Don’t Remember: ’cause my birthday is in November, I’m gettin’ on in age and my memory ain’t what it used to be. 🙂

  10. March Maladies, April Achoos, May There Be No More Pollen. I’ve got a theme.

    • maggietoussaint says

      I feel your allergy pain, LOL! Nursing a middle ear infection right now from allergy side effects. Yowsa.

  11. Debbie Oxier says

    November Election Selection. March Mayhem. in honor of the giveaway Mysteries of March. December to Remember because of Christmas and the reason we celebrate.

    • maggietoussaint says

      Very creative, Debbie. I love December to Remember. That’s my birthday month as well!

  12. What with all the holiday hustle and bustle, I’m nominating DECEMBER DAZE

    • maggietoussaint says

      Made me laugh, Jim. Of course, I feel like I’m in a daze most days. Just a little north of too busy for my brain.
