Almanac - July

July’s name comes from the Latin for Julius Caesar.  It was called Julius mensis, or “month of Julius.”

Originally called Quintilis mensis for “fifth month,” Julius Caesar named the month after himself when he reformed the calendar in 46 BC.

July’s Birthstone is the Ruby, which is a bright red gemstone.

July’s Flower is the Lackspur, which symbolizes "Passionate Attachment."

Aphelion is the point in the orbit when the earth is the farthest from the sun.  The earth will be at Aphelion on July 6th.  It is still the hottest weather here in the north because the tilt of the earth has us facing the sun directly and the sun’s rays fall nearly straight on us.

July’s Full Moon, on the 1st, is the Buck Moon.  Male deer, which shed their antlers every year, begin to regrow them in July, hence the Native American name for July's full moon.

Other names include Thunder moon, for the month's many summer storms, and Hay moon, after the July hay harvest.

 

Holidays to Remember: July

July is . . . . Baked Beans Month, Ice Cream Month, Tennis Month, Read an Almanac Month, and Anti-Boredom Month.
