The Month of July
While July is now known as the seventh month of the year, it was not this way when Julius Caesar roamed the Earth. Back in Ancient Rome, the “Roman calendar” was created and followed. This model of the calendar only had 10 months where January and February weren’t included and March started the year. Because of this, July was the fifth month. At this time, the name of July was actually “Quintillis,” meaning “fifth month” in Latin. However, once July became the seventh month in our modern Gregorian version of the calendar, the name July was chosen to honor Julius Caesar.
The month of July is represented by the red ruby gemstone and the larkspur and water lily flowers. While red rubies are meant to symbolize contentment, the bluish-purplish larkspur flower represents grace and the water lily means purity.
July Holidays & Observances
On all of our calendars, including the July Calendar, you’ll find all of the appropriate holidays labelled. Specifically, over the course of the 31 days in July you’ll find one holiday: The 4th of July, or Independence Day. For more information about this holiday and the month of July in general, keep reading below!
Independence Day in the United States is always celebrated on the same day: July 4. This is because this is the exact date America declared independence from Britain. This made the country officially become the free nation we know it as today. On the calendar pdf you can expect to see July 4 on a Tuesday.
On July 4, it is customary for Americans to hold barbecues to celebrate. Many will host close friends, families, and neighbors at their house and enjoy eating typical grilled American foods like hamburgers and hotdogs. Additionally, it’s customary to wait until it’s dark outside (usually around 8pm in July in the Northern Hemisphere) and begin to shoot off fireworks. While many big stadiums and companies will hire professional firework brands to choreograph and present a firework show, many Americans will shoot off fireworks right outside their own homes. As exciting and noisy as this can be, it’s also often to the dismay of law enforcement in states where personal use of fireworks are illegal such as New York, Delaware, and Massachusetts.
