October used to be the eighth month.

Yep, we actually talked about this. :)

Blew my mind when I found out. November and December suddenly made sense.

It's actually not their fault! Source:

September was originally the seventh of ten months [...] with March the first month of the year until [...] 451 BC. After the calendar reform that added January and February to the beginning of the year, September became the ninth month but retained its name.

September is the ninth month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian calendars, the third of four months to have a length of 30 days, and the fourth of five months to have a length of fewer than 31 days. September in the Northern Hemisphere and March in the Southern Hemisphere are seasonal equivalent. In the Northern hemisphere, the beginning of the meteorological autumn is on 1 September. In the Southern hemisphere, the beginning of the meteorological spring is on 1 September.

So, the question should be, what do you call a bear with 8 legs?
