September holidays are upon us!

On September 19th we have "Talk Like A Pirate Day"  (a fave of Jeff's)

and then September 22nd is the autumnal Equinox.  ;D

In the Northern Hemisphere, the fall equinox marks the first day of fall (autumn) in what we call astronomical seasons. There's also another, more common definition of when the seasons start, namely meteorological definitions, which are based on average temperatures rather that astronomical events.

Will you play my record? One-track mind!

One of our local TV meteorologists--one of the more reliable ones--once explained that to meteorologists, fall is September, October, and November; winter is December, January, and February; spring is March, April, and May; and summer is June, July, and August.

This is the pattern generally accepted in the Southern Hemisphere - well the Pacific area of it anyway. NZ, Australia, PNG and Fiji all say Spring started on September 1 although it did not feel like it last week but then they do say Spring weather is changeable.

That's how we divide the year here too.

Summer officially ends 31st August and autumn begins in September.
