September (from Latin septem, “seven”) was originally the seventh of ten months on the oldest known Roman calendar, with March (Latin Martius  –  “A Martini ?”  “No, I asked for a Martinus, if I wanted two, I would have asked for two !” ) the first month of the year until perhaps as late as 153 BC. After the calendar reform that added January and February to the beginning of the year, September became the ninth month, but retained its name. It had 29 days until the Julian reform, which added a day.

So fittingly, we end Pink in September on the seventh post with seven images.

  1. The whole calendar thing can be very confusing. Don’t forget to add the extra day in a leap year.

      Yes it is all very timey wimey . 😀
      What I could never understand when I was younger, is why not balance more of the months. Give February two more days to reach 30 and bring two months down from 31 to 30. Technically, you could snuffle a few days so that the first seven months all have 30 days. Have leap day fall in December and really mess-up the Christmas holidays & new Year’s Eve. 😀
