I'm reminded of arranging to meet someone for brunch on New Year's Day, and her cheery sign-off .. "See you next year!" .. when it was only three days away.

As has already been discussed (and I imagine that you know this already), these lists have to do with a relative length of time, not an absolute length of time. A month ago was December 10. If I think about how many times I've had a glass of beer in the last month, I don't consider all of December, or the part of January that's gone by so far -- I consider the period from December 10 to the present day (or maybe I start from December 11 if I'm being a little picky).

And under your suggested definitions, the Best Nodes of the Year wouldn't mean much at noon on January 1 -- in fact, it would be identical to the Best Nodes of Day and Month.

So leave things the way they are. And have a nice glass of beer. :)
