December (十二月) Jūnigatsu − "Month of Priests Running."
As this year comes to a close, we reach Jūnigatsu, The "Month of Priests Running."
The nickname of this month refers to the busy schedule of the lantern sages of Tōrōgakure,
as during the Founding of Tōrōgakure they managed most of the village's internal affairs.
This meant all preparations for the season fell upon the sages, such as cleaning the graves,
preparing supplies for winter, tending to the final harvest and preparing for spring festivals.
There are also several practices that the villagers of Tōrōgakure celebrate during Jūnigatsu,
many of which are traditions coined by the Takashi − Shōdai Clan during the village's founding.
