The Month of September

September is the first month of fall in the northern half of the world and the first month of spring in the southern half. It is the ninth month in the Gregorian calendar and has 30 days, it also marks the star of the academic year in many countries, it means time for back to school, so get ready! September’s history is kind of curious, as Septem in Latin means seven, so, why isn’t the seventh month called September? The Old Roman calendar started in March, making September the seventh month but when the Roman senate changed the calendar in 153 BCE, the new year started in January, and that is why September became the ninth month.

This month holds an impressive number of important holidays, for example, September 5 (2022) was Labor Day in the United States, celebrated on the first Monday of September, it became a federal holiday in 1894 to add a holiday in the long gap between Independence Day in July and Thanksgiving in November. We are very thankful for this; many families use this long weekend to have a fun last summer trip! On and international view, September 10 holds the Mid-Autumn Festival in China, also known as Moon festival! One of the most important celebrations in the Chinese calendar, second only to the Chinese New Year. All over China, people make lanterns and enjoy moon cakes, exchange gifts, and celebrate the Full Moon.

Fun and interesting holidays are also celebrated around this month of the year, some of them are September 4th, The National Macadamia Nut Day, September 5th, the National Cheese Pizza Day or the National Be Late for Something Day, September 21st the National Alzheimer’s Day, or September 30th Save the Koala Day. Historical events are very important too, to name just some of the ones that took place in this month are September 1, 1752, when the Liberty Bell arrived in Philadelphia, September 9, 1776, when the Congress of the U.S. officially changed the name of the nation from United Colonies to The United States of America. Or September 24, 1493, when Christopher Columbus set sail on his second expedition to the New World. We also celebrate September 17, Constitution Day, that celebrates the adoption of the U.S. Constitution.

September this year was filled with events that will leave a mark in history, to name one of them, the passing away of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty died at 3:10 pm U.K. time (10:10 am ET) on September 8 at Balmoral Castle in Ballater, Scotland. Britain’s longest-reigning monarch died peacefully aged 96.
