September Facts:

It is the first month of Autumn.

  • Many children begin the school year in September.
  • September is often associated with fire because it was associated with Vulcan, the Roman god of fire and the forge.
  • In 1752, the British changed from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar. The change required an adjustment to some days because the seasons were off. To fix it, they moved 11 days from September. They went from September 3 to the 14th. To the Britain in 1752 the days between September 3 and 13 just never happened.
  • Folklore: Married in September’s golden glow, smooth and serene your life will go.


See you next month!
