12 French proverbs for January to December

12 French proverbs for January to December

When it thunders in January, winter is cut short 

If February starts like a lion it finishes like a lamb 

Greenery in March is a bad omen 

The April moon doesn’t pass without frost 

When the blackbird sings in May, April has finished! 

In June gloomy haze, only three difficult days 

In the month of July, neither coat nor corset 

August ripens the fruits, September picks them 

If June makes quantity, September makes quality 

A half rainy October makes the ploughman happy but the worried grape picker puts aside his old wine 

Fog in November, winter will be tender 

A cold and snowy December brings a rich and happy summer
