Thrimidge, often written as Thrimich, is the fifth month of the Shire Calendar, lying between Astron and Forelithe, and approximately corresponding to modern 22 April through 21 May.
The name represents a modernization of the Old English name for May, þrimilce meaning "Three milk-givings". As such, an archaic form of the name was Thrimilch.
