                    The Months of the Year:

                    Jerrey-Geuree = January
                    Toshiaght-Arree = February
                    Mean-Arree = March
                    Jerrey-Arree = April
                    Toshiaght- Sourree = May
                    Mean-Souree = June
                    Jerrey-Souree = July
                    Toshiaght-Ouyir = August
                    Mean-Fouyir = September
                    Jerrey-Fouyir = October
                    Toshiaght-Gheuree = November
                    Mean-Gheuree = December

                    The Seasons:
                    Yn Arragh – Spring
                    Y Sourey – Summer
                    Y Fouyr – Autumn/Fall
                    Yn Gheurey – Winter.

                    In Manx Times of the Year, the Season Change at the same times as the Four Celtic Sacred Sabbaths of Imbolc, Beltane, Lughnasad and Samhain.

                    So Manx Spring starts on February 1st, Summer starts on May 1st, Fall starts on August 1st and Winter starts on November 1st.

                    Shows that Ancient Celtic Culture has a lot of influence with Manx Culture.

                      Moghrey Mie!

                      Daa-Yeig Roish Iaa Nollick Beg – Twelve Days Before New Years.

                      Kiare Roich Iaa Nollick – Four Days Before Xmas Day.

                      Had to look up the term for ‘Before’ and it is Roich and for Day the Manx Word ‘Iaa’.
