Tip of the Month - Days and months are...
Masculine? Days and months??

Yes, that simple. You just have to remember that, in Spanish, both, names of months and days of the week are always used in masculine, so, if necessary, they will be used with the corresponding masculine article (el - un - los - unos) or adjective in masculine form.

Of course, here we have the list:
(You can click on them to read more about each word [meaning/s, expressions, idioms...] and to listen to its pronunciation)

Días de la semana:

- Lunes (Monday)
- Martes (Tuesday)
- Miércoles (Wednesday)
- Jueves (Thursday)
- Viernes (Friday)
- Sábado (Saturday)
- Domingo (Sunday)
  Meses del año:

- Enero (January)
- Febrero (February)
- Marzo (March)
- Abril (April)
- Mayo (May)
- Junio (June)

- Julio (July)
- Agosto (August)
- Septiembre (September)
- Octubre (October)
- Noviembre (November)
- Diciembre (December)

Algunos ejemplos (Some examples):

- El próximo lunes (Next Monday)
[Note that in Spanish we use the article (el, in this case). So we don't say "próximo lunes" but "el próximo lunes"]

- El domingo próximo (Next Sunday)
[You can see now "próximo" after the name of the day. Note that we can place "próximo" either before or after the name of the day, without changing the meaning.]

- Abril es un mes de primavera.(April is a spring month.)

- Vamos a tu casa en diciembre.(We are going to your house in December.)
[Have you noticed I haven't used capital letters with days of the week and months? In Spanish it's not necessary.]

- Visitamos el museo en el mes de mayo. (We visited the museum in May.)
