Diversity Month


Used to be the seventh month of the year and in Latin, septem means 'seven'.

Until Julius Caesar's calendar reform of 45BC, September had only 29 days.

The Anglo-Saxons called September Gerst Monath (Barley Month) or Haefest Monath (Harvest Month) celebrating the barley harvest.

Key holidays in September are Labor Day, Mid Autumn Festival and Autumnal Equinox Day.
