A month in the calendar of Bree

Months of the year

The fourth month in the old calendar of Bree, corresponding to Astron on the Shire Calendar, or Viressë in the Quenya month names commonly used in Middle-earth. The name of this month is probably related to Old English ciþ, 'a plant shoot', reflecting its status as part of spring.
