What is special about the month of September?

The Month of September

September is the ninth month of the year. The Roman name September comes from septem, the Latin word for “seven”.

After the Romans switched September from the seventh to the ninth month, several Roman leaders tried to rename September. But they had no success.

Summer ends and autumn begins on September 22 or 23 in the northern half of the world. September is the time when many crops in the north are harvested. In the southern half of the world, winter is ending, and spring is just beginning.

The month of September was named during a time when the calendar year began with March, which is why the name does not correspond with the placement in the Julian and Gregorian calendars.

September is a time when many students return to school after the summer holiday in the Northern Hemisphere. September starts on the same day of the week as December every year. It does not end on the same day of the week as any other month in the year.
