Hi Jie Si,
Thanks for your comment!
No, 四月 is only read しがつ. There's no rule for when to use the on-yomi (ancient Chinese sound) or the kun-yomi (Japanese sounds) of the kanji. Depending on the word, the sound changes. 四月 is しがつ, 四時 is よじ and 四匹 is よんひき.
There's nothing to do with the word 死（し）as death.
Please let us know if you have any question :)
四月 shi-gatsu .... is it correct to say ion-gatsu?
Japanese people doesn't like to say "SHI", so why they use 'SHI-GATSU" instead 'ION-GATSU"?
Hi Farhan Ishrak Fahim,

Do you like it because it's Christmas or birth month?😄
Please let us know if you have any questions!
Thank you for your comment! 😄
That's a good month. I like it, too because it's not too hot, not too cold.
Is Jūichi-gatsu your birth month?
