November is associated with many things: Thanksgiving and Black Friday (in America and the Canadian border), the beginning of the Christmas season, and football.
I, however, associate November with clouds.
Oppressive, heavy, life-draining clouds.
So, for me, tenebrous is a fitting word for November, as it is often both dark and gloomy. Tenebrous’s meaning as “obscure” is an interesting side note, as darkness obscures. The word has a Biblical or at least liturgical origin, as the Tenebrae are the songs sung at night or in the evening on the Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of Holy Week.
