September Facts & Tidbits

The name for September, the ninth month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian calendars, comes from the Latin septem, for seven, as it was the seventh month in the Roman calendar, until 46 BCE.

In the Northern Hemisphere September 1 is the start of the meteorological autumn, in the Southern Hemisphere it is the beginning of the meteorological spring

Other names for September reflect the autumn connection: Herbstmonat - “harvest month” in Switzerland and in Charlemagne's calendar; Anglo-Saxons called the month Gerstmonath, “barley month” for the crop being then usually harvested, Japanese “Nagatsuki”, month of harvest moon, Boedromion (Greek), and Meàn Fòmhair (middle of Autumn/harvest, in Irish).

Birthstones - Sapphire & Lapis. Flowers - Forget-me-not, Asters & Morning Glory

The Zodiac signs for individuals born in September are Virgo (until September 22) and Libra (from September 22 onward).

Fun September Trivia:
Sepember has 30 days (and so do April, June, and November).

In 1752, the British Empire adopted the Gregorian calendar. In the British Empire that year, September 2 was immediately followed by September 14.

September begins on the same day of the week as December every year. (Do the math - 91 days separating September and December is a multiple of 7, the number of days in a week.

No other month ends on the same day of the week as September in any year.
