When you think of September, you may think of football, changing leaves or the Earth, Wind & Fire song, but what about how the month got its name? “September” stems from the Latin “septem,” meaning “seven.” Although September is the ninth month on the Gregorian calendar, the one we use, it was originally the seventh of ten months on the Roman calendar used in the late first century B.C. Recognizable symbols of September include its birthstone, the sapphire and its zodiac signs, Virgo and Libra.
