Which are special days in the Month of June?

The Month of June

June is the sixth month of the year. Some people say that June was named after Juno, the Roman goddess of marriage. Others think that the name came from the Latin word juniores, meaning “young men”. These people say that the Romans held June sacred to young men, just as they held May sacred to the majores, or “older men”.

In the northern half of the world, summer begins on June 20, 21, or 22. In the southern part of the world, this is when winter starts.

Each month is filled with a few important days or events and those days have their own place in the history of the world. Some of the events are celebrated in India whereas others are celebrated around the world with particular themes.  Many celebrations take place in June, especially marriages. So before you enter the sixth month of the year, there are a few interesting things you should know.

June consists of 30 days in total and doesn’t start on the same day of the week — as any other month — but it always ends on the same day of the week as March every year.

Apart from ‘Father’s Day’ and ‘World Environment Day’ there are various national and international events that are celebrated in the month of June. Even the longest day of the year falls in the month of June.
