The Month of June in the United States
On our June 2020 Calendar available for download below, you will find that June has 30 days. While the month of June has had 30 days and been the sixth month of the twelve calendar year for quite some time now, it was not always this way. In fact, back in Ancient Rome, a different calendar was used. A ten month calendar. This version of the calendar was called the Roman calendar.
In this version of the calendar, June only had 29 days and was the fifth month of the year. This is because the first Month of the year was March and January and February didn’t exist as months. However, the calendar changed to the way we know it now, the Gregorian Calendar, in 450 BCE. Additionally, June got it’s name from the Roman Goddess Juno, the goddess of childbirth and marriage.
Ever wonder why June is the start of “wedding season” here in the United States? Well, now you know! It stems back to the original namesake of the month and the idea that it is good luck to get married in Juno’s month.
Father’s Day in the United States
Anxious to make some Father’s Day plans? Well, don’t worry, you’ve still got time as Father’s Day is not until the third Sunday of June. You’ll find that for this year, marked on our June 2020 calendar available for download below, Father’s Day isn’t until Sunday, June 21.
Father’s Day is not a federal holiday. Businesses that are typically open on Sundays should remain open, especially restaurants where it is popular for families to gather in observance of this day. Most Americans will observe Father’s Day to honor any kind of father figure(s) that they value in their life, including but not limited to: Fathers, Step-fathers, Grandfathers, Godfathers, Adopted Fathers, and Foster Fathers.
It is customary on this day to hold a barbecue, go out to brunch, go fishing, go golfing, or do any other type of activity that the father figure enjoys. Cards or small gifts may be given to the father by the children as a token of appreciation for everything their father has done for them.
Flag Day in the United States
Unlike Father’s Day, Flag Day has the same date every single year: June 14. On the June 2020 Calendar available for download below, you’ll find that this year it falls on a Sunday. Historically, this day marks the exact date in 1777 when all British symbols were removed from America’s flag. Therefore, the day symbolizes freedom and independence.
Although Flag Day is not an official federal holiday, some towns and institutions, especially schools, and Veterans group, may celebrate the holiday with parades and/or ceremonies. Flag Day also happens to be the birthday of the United States Army.
The First Day of Summer in the United States
Many Americans look forward to the first day of summer, or the “Summer Solstice,” as it is the longest day of the year. While of course it still maintains 24 hours like any other day, the Summer Solstice is the day with the most hours of daylight. On the June 2020 calendar available for download below, you can look forward to the Summer Solstice’s 16 hours of daylight on Saturday June 20, 2020.
Believe it or not, each year, the date of the first day of summer fluctuates. The date typically ranges from June 20 to June 22. The reason the date cannot be established specifically is because it depends upon the positioning of the sun. Whichever day the sun is the highest in the sky is the day that the sun will shine for the longest and therefore deemed the official first day of summer.
