"January is named after the Roman god Janus, who was always shown as having two heads. He looked back to the last year and forward to the new one. The Roman New Year festival was called the Calends, and people decorated their homes and gave each other gifts."

January Weather Lore
A wet January, a wet Spring.
A warm January, a cold May. (Welsh Proverb)
The blackest month in all the year
Is the month of Janiveer.
A favorable January brings us a good year.
In Janiveer if the sun appear
March and April pay full dear.
If grain grows in January, there will be a year of great need.
January blossoms fill no man's cellar.
If birds begin to sing in January, frosts will come.
If January kalends be summerly gay,
'Twill be winterly weather to the kalends of May.
Jack Frost in Janiveer, Nips the nose of the nascent year.
If January has never a drop, the barn will need an open prop
If in February there be no rain, it is neither good for hay nor grain.
March damp and warm, will do the farmer much harm.
April cold and wet, fills the barns best yet.
Cold May and windy, barn filleth up finely.
