A month-name of the calendar of Bree

Months of the year

The tenth month of the year, as it was known to the Men and Hobbits of Bree. In the Shire, the name was slightly different, and it was known there as Winterfilth. It was derived ultimately from the Elvish name for the month, Narquelië, 'fading of the Sun' - that is, the onset of winter.
