Historical Facts & Events In September
september : Historical Events
The name ‘September’ might give people belonging to zodiac signs like ‘Virgo’ and ‘Libra’ butterflies in their stomach since their birthdays fall on this month, but this month has more to it. Just like the word ‘Septuplets’, September too was an adaptation of the Latin word ‘Septum’ which indicates seven, since it was the seventh month of the Roman calendar.
Even though it is the ninth month of the Gregorian calendar, the name was retained. It is also recognized as the month of harvest in few regions around the globe. For instance, some people remember it as ‘Gerst Monath’, a month when Barley is harvested for the sake of a beverage.
