Retrieves the month value of the Date object according to local time.
To get the month value according to Universal Coordinated Time (UTC), use the getUTCMonth method.
The getMonth method returns an integer between 0 and 11 indicating the month stored in the Date object. The integer returned is not the traditional number used to indicate the month. It is one less. If "Jan 5, 1996 08:47:00" is stored in a Date object, getMonth returns 0.
