Weather of Arabia - January is the first month in the solar Roman Gregorian calendar It is known in the Arab Mashreq as (January), and in the Arabian Gulf, Yemen and the Nile Valley (January ) and in the Maghreb it is called ( JANVIER ).
The term (Kanun) was taken from the Aramaic-Syriac Levantine calendar, which means in Arabic “the stove of fire.” It is the stove designated for heating with wood or coal with the advent of the astronomical winter, and with the start of low temperatures and the feeling of cold day and night.
The term also means "Al-Kun", meaning the stability in the house due to the cessation of work in seasonal agricultural activities and events, where weather factors prevent this .
The month of January has 31 days, and one of its climatic features is that all of its days are located in the “square” that ends with its end.
Perhaps the most famous oral folk proverbs circulating in the Arab Mashreq for the month of January are: “In Kanon, be in your house, and plenty of your firewood and oil.” It makes the trees go murky,” “All trees are bare in Kanon except for oaks, pines and olives,” “There is nothing sweeter than the Tishreen moon, nor darker than the darkness of Kanon,” and “What do you have, oh, crazy, that blooms in Kanon?”
