The Month of July
In the twelve-month calendar accepted by much of the world today, known as the Gregorian Calendar, July is the seventh month of the year and has 31 days. The month of July has a very interesting history in that it used to be the fifth month of the year. This is because prior to 450 BCE, there were only ten months in the year, beginning with March and ending with December. The months of January and February didn’t even exist!
Additionally, in ancient times, July didn’t even have the same name. It was first named “Quintillis,” meaning “fifth month” in Latin. Obviously, once July became the seventh month, the name had to change as Quintillis was no longer appropriate. Therefore, in 45 BCE, July was given the name we know today as an ode to the famous historical figure Julius Caesar. In fact, that second version of the calendar was called the “Julian Calendar” also in honor of Caesar.
July is also interesting in that it is known as the most hot month North of the equator, and the most cold South of the equator. In the Northern Hemisphere, it also the second month of summer, after June. Informally, July is also known as “National Ice Cream Month,” “National Pickle Month,” and “National Hotdog Month.”
The red ruby is the birthstone assigned to the month of July. Rubies get their name from the latin word “rubens,” which translates to “red.” While rubies are always red, each one is unique in its exact shade of red. Rubies are quite rare and symbolize happiness and purity.
Finally, July has two official flowers: the water lily and the larkspur. Water lilies are known to symbolize purity and rebirth as their beauty is only able to thrive in dark, muddy environments such as swamps. Larkspur flowers, on the other hand, represent love and grow in tall stalks known as candlesticks.
