What about September?

September comes from the old Roman word “septem”, meaning “seven”, because in the Roman calendar it was the seventh month. The Romans believed that the month of September was looked after by the god of the fire and forge – Vulcan. September is the ninth month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian calendars, the third of four months to have a length of 30 days, and the fourth of five months to have a length of less than 31 days.

In the Northern Hemisphere September is the seasonal equivalent of March in the Southern Hemisphere.

The birthstone for September is Sapphire.

Have you noticed?

Have you noticed that it’s staying darker longer in the mornings… and getting darker earlier in the evening these days. That’s a sure sign that summer is pretty much over and folks look forward to the end of Daylight Saving Time when we turn our clocks back one hour. That happens on Sunday, Nov. 3, when we’ll see it get darker even earlier each day.
