“Have a good time but remember
There is danger in the summer moon above
Will I see you in September
Or lose you to a summer love”
<Sigh> Our summer flings fun times are just about over and its time to get back to the real world. <groan>
And the big celebration this month is back to school. Or at least it is for a lot of parents, who are celebrating big time this month! Why you can almost hear the cheers from here!
Free at last,
Free at last,
Thank G-d almighty,
we’re free at last!
So with the summer behind us, its time to get back into the holiday swing of things. There’s lots going on this month as we start the countdown to the upcoming holiday season!
Among the holidays this month we’ll be observing the celebrations of Labor Day (Sept. 07), Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year – begins sundown Sept. 18), the breaking of the fast of Ramadan with the joyous festival of Eid ul-Fitr (EID) (Sept. 20), and the ending of the Jewish High Holy Days with a solemn day of fasting and reflection – Yom Kippur (begins at sundown Sept. 27).
And with all this to look forward too, September begins with our absolute favorite daily holiday of the year – Chicken Boy’s Birthday!! (And isn’t it appropriate that its National Chicken Month!)
While September is the 9th month of the year, it originally was the seventh month. In fact September is named for septem – the number seven.
