September Holidays

Sep 01, 2015

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! This year Labor Day is September 7th, 2015.

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 11th 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 16th, 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). This year Autumn Equinox is September 23rd, 2015.

Once the leaves start changing you know autumn is here!Once the leaves start changing you know autumn is here!

 :) This is all about building robots going to competition and having fun. We are all hard working minds ready to learn everyday. If you do not have it at your school or some sort of robotics you should ask someone about it. This is such a great experience, that everyone should have a chance to do.   :confused if you don"t know what this is go to my bio i will be updating until we are done with are competition.
