September in the United States
September is the ninth month of the year in the Gregorian calendar. A few fun facts about the month of September:
– It was originally named Septem in the ancient Roman calendar
– September was the seventh, not the ninth, month on the calendar. This is because the year started in March during. It became the ninth Month when King Pompilus added January and February to the calendar.
– September initially had 29 days. Julian Caesar added a day to the month, making it a 30-day month
In the ancient Roman Empire and Europe in general, September was the harvest month. It is during this period that farmers would reap the grains they planted in spring. Huge festivals would be held to celebrate the harvest. Emperors and governments also collected taxes during this period. It was, therefore, a very important month in that era.
Today, September has a completely different significance in people’s lives. For Americans, it is the beginning of Fall, and the period to go back to school and work. Frankly speaking, it is one of the least favorite months. No one likes pulling out of a fun holiday, full of interesting activities, and being thrown back into the daily routine of school and work life. But since we cannot party all year, we face the month and all its hurdles.
Despite this, there are several good things that come from the ending of summer. And one of them is TV shows. Fall marks the return of most TV programs that took a break in Spring. Comedy, drama, reality TV, and game shows all make a comeback in September. This is after keeping the audience waiting, possibly in suspense, for over six months. This is one of the many reasons that make the month interesting and worth looking forward to.
Labor Day in the United States
Labor Day 2018: Monday, September 3, 2018
Most nations in the world celebrate Labor Day on the 1st of May. But in the United States, it is done on first Monday of September every year. For this year, it will be the on the 3rd. It is a day to celebrate America’s workforce and its contribution to the nation’s growth.
Labor unions that fight for worker’s rights are behind the holiday’s establishment. The eight-hour day is notably the most vocal union that is behind the establishment of this day. Through their fight, this day was set aside to reflect on the blood sweat and tears, put in by America’s workforce day in day out all year round.
Labor Day has however been taken differently by the public. To most Americans, it is their last opportunity to enjoy the summer break. This is because it is the last public holiday in summer, and often precedes the re-opening of schools and offices in many states. So many people take the day off, relax and enjoy this last day of vacation in their unique way. Some of the notable celebration activities include:
– Family picnics
– House or block parties; especially for high school and college students
– Fireworks displays
These are often the final activities of summer.
Equinox is a geographical phenomenon in which the sun is directly over the equator. This means that the length of the day and that of the night are exactly equal. It happens twice every year: in March and in September. This year, it will occur on 23rd September.
The few people who keep tabs on such phenomenon can truly appreciate its beauty. It is a major geographical and astronomical phenomenon. It implies the sun has crossed over the equator and is heading south. Its implication is that temperatures will gradually start falling as the sun progresses further south until it reaches an all-time low in the winter solstices.
Enthusiasts of the event usually gather on different grounds to witness the event in its full glory. In the US, the annual observance site is the Cahokia archaeological site near Collinsville, Illinois. It is a large timber circle in which you can witness the sun rise and set.
