September HoliDailys


With another school year in full-swing and cooler weather finally on the way, the month of September has plenty of traditional holidays, not-so-traditional holidays and downright wacky holidays. While some holidays honor people, important historical events, momentous occasions or worthwhile causes, September celebrates grandparents, books, animals, delicious food, refreshing beverages and a very special language.
