What's the origin of the Czech names for months? Impossible to figure out the translation without looking at the hint. I incorrectly assumed that únor would be January... :X

Yes I also wonder about it. It is difficult. The weekdays are a little bit easier. Many are related to the counting words I think.

Thanks for the lead. Here's a link for those that come behind. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavic_calendar#Czech_months. It's interesting but, for this American English speaker, not useful to help remember.

This will be another deck of flashcards.

why not "I like that february is a short month"? wait, why is it "jsem rad" and not "mam rad"?
