By all these lovely tokens, September days are here.’ – Helen Hunt Jackson
In the Georgian calendar, the calendar that most of the world uses, September is the ninth month of the year. However, it used to be the seventh month on the Roman calendar. It had 29 and 31 days but it later was changed to 30 days by Emperor Augustus. In Southern United States, it is the warmest months of the year and very cool nights for Northern states. It is the harvest time for crops and that is why Switzerland calls September the harvest month. In the Northern hemisphere, beginning of September leads to the beginning of meteorological autumn while it is the beginning of the meteorological spring in southern hemisphere.
The birthstone for September is the sapphire and the zodiac signs for September are Virgo (August 23 – September 22) and Libra (September 23 – October 22). The birth flower for September is the morning glory, but did you know, September is the only month with the same number of letters in its name as the number of the month: it is the ninth month and has nine letters?
