September Holidays

Sep 01, 2014
There are a ton of holidays to celebrate in September, including Grandparent's Day.
September Holidays

Before you've even stepped foot into a classroom, you're counting down the days until Christmas break. If September only reminds you that you're back to the grindstone at school, then take a look at some of these fun September holidays that'll make the countdown until Christmas go a little faster.

Labor Day

This holiday is celebrated every year on the first Monday of September to honor the working people of the world. Labor Day is a day of relaxation and usually marks the unofficial end of summer. Cuz even though you get to rest and hang out on Labor Day, school usually starts up again the very next day!

Grandparent's Day

We have a day to celebrate our moms and a day to celebrate our dads, so why not celebrate the people who brought our moms and dads into the world, too? Grandparent's Day is celebrated on the Sunday following Labor Day every year. You don't have to do anything too crazy that day, but why not make a cool card for the grandparents or buy 'em a plant for their garden? Just spending some one-on-one time with them is also a good idea. They'll appreciate it and maybe you'll get to sample a batch of grandma's yummy cookies!

Patriot Day

In 2002, President George W. Bush declared September 11 as Patriot Day in the USA. This day is to honor all those lost in the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. On Patriot Day, ceremonies and memorials are held across the United States. What will you being doing this ?

Mexican Independence Day

September 16, 1810, marks the day when Mexican priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla called for the arrest of all Spanish settlers living in the town of Delores. He sparked a revolution that lasted more than 11 years. By 1821, Mexico had managed to claim its independence from Spain.

Autumn Equinox

The leaves are starting to change color and the air is starting to feel crisper. Yup, fall is here! The Autumn Equinox brings the official end to summer. In Japan, the Autumn Equinox has been declared a national holiday to celebrate the changing of seasons and to pay respect to the dead. From this day on, our days will get shorter and there will be a lot less sunlight (in the Northern Hemisphere, that is).

Fave Thing About Fall?

  • Going back to school... Not!
  • Buying cool new fall clothes.
  • Jumping in massive piles of leaves.
  • Nothing. I wish it could be summer all year long.

I want to make a Best In The World sigbar/userbar that's a bit more creative than the one I have now. I could do it, but it'll have a "Made by Nimsajeay" thingy on it. xD  That would be fine :) You could if you want to. I'm not sure what input you need me to have in it though. Sorry for my late response.  I won't be able to do it today, probably, as I'm busy.  But I'll be able to do it soon.  Just tell me a few colors you want me to incorporate, if you want any pictures, the exact text, and if you have a preferred font.
