Autumn LeavesSeptember Means "Back to School"...

It also means a few other things as well. However, with the hustle and bustle of the new semester we can forget that the month of September has more to it. Here are just a few events and dates to look forward to in September:


Labor Day

The first Monday of every September is dedicated to the hard worker, the one who puts in their 40-plus hours each week. Since labor day has officially come and gone, we hope you were able to sleep in and do whatever you want. It was quite nice to have a three-day-weekend just after the semester starts.

Swap Ideas Day

On September 10th you are encouraged to collaborate and swap ideas with someone. Do you have a good idea for a shorter route to work or even a nice recipe that you’ve stumbled across? If so, share them with someone. You’ll never know what you may get in return. Collaboration is the key.

Sharing is good. Ideas are a good thing, too. Putting the two together should produce a real winner of a day.

International Talk Like a Pirate Day

Since 1995, September 19th has been International Talk Like a Pirate Day. It is simply a time to have a little fun and let your inner pirate out, matey.

Practice up your pirate-talk and get ready for September 19th. You can have quite the fun in your office if you go all out with this fun day. You don’t have to walk the walk, but you can at least talk the talk.

Autumnal Equinox

Throughout the year, the earth has a slight tilt to it. During the winter months, wherever you may live, your respective hemisphere (northern or southern) points away from the sun and towards the sun during the summer months. However, during the equinox period, the earth has no tilt to it. This phenomenon, while very interesting, marks the transition between seasons.

On September 22, we will experience the autumnal equinox and the earth will have no tilt to it. In other words, this is the date that summer officially ends and fall begins. Hopefully, cooler weather is not too far away.
