If you are a parent, you quietly enjoy the freedom. It is September and the kids are back in school. And if you are back in school, you balance your resignation with the excitement of seeing old friends again.
Some of us follow the monarch butterfly’s annual migration. Some of us follow the Rugby World Cup finals. Whatever we are doing this month, we have one thing in common.
We are moving away from summer’s heat and the change feels good. The temperature outside doesn’t matter. It is September and we already feel cooler.
Cooler Just Because
No one needs an excuse. This month, we rock a little better, roll a little easier and just stay cooler. We enjoy outdoor concerts with minimum sweat. Biking around the park is a breeze. Fall officially descends and we’re glad to see sweet summertime in the rearview mirror. That alone makes September very cool.
We have some very cool things to celebrate. The ninth month is home to Tailgating Day and National Good Neighbor Day. It is the only month with days dedicated to cherries jubilee, skyscrapers and rabbits. It is the month when sunsets come a little earlier too.
Easier on the Eyes
No one can prove that September sunsets blaze across the horizon with an intensity we don’t see the rest of the year, and no one can prove they don’t. Autumn leaves still have weeks to go before they begin to dazzle, but we love our view of the trees without summer’s haze.
Sunglasses don’t feel like necessities. Chrysanthemums burst into bloom. The skies fill with birds headed south while squirrels entertain us with frantic winter-prep antics. From our backyards to the banks of our favorite fishing spots, this time of year the view is amazing.
Perfect for Sharing
Between parents and children, the back-to-school experience is still fresh enough to enjoy. This month we share holidays that celebrate and observe the things we care about. Beautiful fall gardens become stunning when we walk through them together. The glory of a sunset is multiplied by multiple gazes.
We love its inherent sense of cool. We appreciate how it shifts our vision away from summer. But most of all, we celebrate the idea that September is the most shareable month of the year. Consider this – You are here, right now, enjoying all this talk about it.
Welcome to another wonderful month at HolidayDispatch.
