Not everyone uses our calendar but most have a word for December

Clarification / correction - when I ask "can you read" in the poll (which of course I cannot edit now) I meant "can you see the letters clearly", not "can you read and comprehend"!!!

Which of these various languages can you read? (The word in question is, I think, the word for December in the most widely spoken language using that alphabet - so no Farsi, Urdu, Marathi, Ukrainian or Yiddish I'm afraid)

Amharic: ዲሴምበር

For those languages marked with asterisks, I couldn't find or didn't like the word for 'December' so used 'Christmas' instead.
