A month-name in the calendar of Bree

Months of the year

The name used in Bree for the eleventh month of the year, following Wintring and preceding Yulemath. Blooting was equivalent to Blotmath in the Shire, and corresponded approximately to modern November. The name Blooting (and its Shire equivalent Blotmath) both derive from Old English blót, meaning 'sacrifice' (and related to modern 'blood').
