This translation might seem trivial, but if one encounters some of the words alone and out of context, that could be a different matter. The problem is also compounded by the old use of "Y" and "J" in the place of "I". This should also demonstrate how similar German and English can be having both descended from Old Norse, the language of the Vikings. Therefore the months of the year are yours to translate. Hint: the activities represented below the names of the months show activities associated with the time of year.   This large, salt-glazed, stoneware pouring stein is only marked "449" and is from the late 1800's.
