Uncle Sam wants YOU!

Hiya!

Can you believe it’s September already? That means in about a week or so, summer will be over. I don’t want it to end! To celebrate the ninth month of the year (in the Georgian calendar), here are a few fun facts about it:

  • It used to be the seventh month on the Roman calendar. And it had 29 and 31 days but was later changed to 30 days by Emperor Augustus.
  • September is the only month with the same number of letters in its name in English as the number of the month.
  • In any year, no other month ends on the same day as September.
  • September 8 is International Literacy Day.
  • September 13 is International Chocolate Day and Uncle Sam Day.
  • Shakespeare did not mention September in any of his plays.
  • National Sickle Cell Month
  • In the U.S, the first Sunday after the first Monday (Labor Day) is National Grandparents’ Day.
  • Mexico’s War of Independence began on September 15, 1810.
