September Holidays

No no no, not the BIG holidays (“Labor Day”? pah!). I mean those celebrations and commemorations of weirdly specific phenomena: “Snowman Burning Day,” for example (that one is March 20, for the record).

Since September also my birthday month, I figure I’d share some of the holidays I’m excited about (or, well, just curious about) this September.

Things To Celebrate All Month Long:

  • Backpack Safety Month
  • Be Kind To Editors & Writers Month
  • College Savings Month (how about, “pay back college loans month”?)
  • National Honey Month
  • International People Skills Month …AND National Self-Awareness Month (contradictory?)
  • Subliminal Communications Month (does that count as “people skills”?)
  • Mold Awareness Month (…um)
  • Pleasure Your Mate Month (do they really need a month for this?)
  • One-on-One Month (redundant)
  • Women’s Friendship Month
  • National Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept 15-Oct 15)
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Month

Week-Long Celebrations:

  • National Waffle Week (5th – 11th)
  • Beer Days (16th-18th)
  • Turn Off Your TV Week (19th – 25th)
  • National Chimney Safety Week: (Sept 26 – Oct 2)
  • National Keep Kids Creative Week: (Sept 26 – Oct 2)
  • Banned Books Week: (Sept 27 – Oct 2)

And, For Only One Day:

  • National No Rhyme (Nor Reason) Day: Sept 1
  • International Literacy Day: Sept 7
  • Swap Ideas Day: Sept 10
  • International Chocolate Day: Sept 13
  • National Urban Eden Day: Sept 13
