[der] März / Dezember

We have "Der März ist ein Monat" but also "Dezember ist ein Monat". Does the "der" change the meaning of the sentence?

No, it's the same. I suppose it's similar to the way Germans often put articles before someone's name; it doesn't change the meaning of the sentence, but implies a certain familiarity with the person.

No, it doesn't change the meaning.
