Till Next Time,
In Old English, September is called Haervest-monath(Harvest Month). This is time when the harvest is gathered, ready and put up for the winter months. September’s name comes from the Latin word septem, meaning “seven”. This month
This year, Labor Day, (the first Monday in September), falls on the 5th. Did you know Canadians also celebrate Labour Day as well?
Patriot Day is observed in the U.S. on 11 September or 9/11.
Grandparents’ Day is also celebrated on 11 September too! Please honor your grandparents(if you still have them) today and every day. I have two Grandma’s left whom are alive and kicking in their 80s! 🙂
Fall is right around the corner! The Autumnal Equinox falls on 23 September this year. At this moment, there is an equal amount of daylight and darkness hours in a day. Find you current sunrise and sunset HERE.
The month is then wrapped up on 29 September with Michealmas, an ancient Celtic “Quarter Day”. This day was marked with the end of the harvesting and steeped heavily in folklore.
Some seasonal all-time favorites to bake would be:
This is a great time to prepare winter bird seed for those of our feathered friends who stay around in the winter.
The Full Harvest Moon will be making its annual appearance on 16 September 2016 3:05P.M. EST. There will also be other night sky events going on this month as well.
Some Folklore For This Month:
Heavy September rains bring drought
September blow soft, till the fruit’s in the loft
Married in September’s golden glow, smooth and serene your life will go
If the storms of September clear off warm, the storms of the following winter will be warm
Fair on September 1st, fair for the month
