7️⃣ This Month @Storyteller: 9/1/22 - Brought to you by the Number Seven!

 


Labor Day Weekend is almost here.

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 fewer than 31 days. September in the Northern Hemisphere, while March in the Southern Hemisphere are seasonal equivalent.

September (from Latin septem, "seven") was originally the seventh of ten months in the oldest known Roman calendar, the calendar of Romulus c. 750 BC, with March (Latin Martius) the first month of the year until perhaps as late as 451 BC. After the calendar reform that added January and February to the beginning of the year, September became the ninth month but retained its name. It had 29 days until the Julian reform, which added a day.

The zodiac signs for the month of September are Virgo ♍ (until September 22) and Libra ♎ (September 23 onwards).


On September 5th, the Americans and Canadians celebrate Labor Day, an annual holiday to celebrate the achievements of workers.


On the 11th, Americans celebrate Patriot Day (not to be confused with the other Patriots' Day) occurs on September 11 of each year in memory of the people killed in the September 11 attacks of the year 2001.

Also, on the 11th in the United States is National Grandparent's Day, it is celebrated to show the bond between grandparents and grandchildren. The flower of the U.S. National Grandparents Day is the "forget-me-not" which blooms in the spring. As a result, seasonal flowers are given in appreciation to grandparents on this day. The "forget-me-not" is also the flower symbol of September. 

Canada formally celebrated Grandparent's Day until 2014.


On the 12th, in the State of Maryland celebrates Defender's Day, an Anniversary of the successful defense of the city of Baltimore from an invading British military force during the War of 1812.



And finally, on the 27th Autumm Begins and the leaves will start to change and fall. 

The word autumn (/ˈɔːtəm/) is derived from Latin autumnus, archaic auctumnus, possibly from the ancient Etruscan root autu- and has within its connotations of the passing of the year. 

The alternative word fall for the season traces its origins to old Germanic languages. The exact derivation is unclear, with the Old English fiæll or feallan and the Old Norse fall all being possible candidates. However, these words all have the meaning "to fall from a height" and are clearly derived either from a common root or from each other. The term came to denote the season in 16th-century England, a contraction of Middle English expressions like "fall of the leaf" and "fall of the year". Compare the origin of spring from "spring of the leaf" and "spring of the year".


During the 17th century, Englishmen began emigrating to the new North American colonies, and the settlers took the English language with them. While the term fall gradually became nearly obsolete in Britain, it became the more common term in North America




Well, that's all folks, have a great September!
