What's Happenin' This Month?
September means American Football starts both collegiate and professional seasons. Typically, families will celebrate the first week by holding parties and playing backyard football. It's a time to "Go Crazy" over football! Don't forget about tailgating parties either.

Go National Apple Month! Apple season has a three-month promotional window from September through November so expect to find all sorts of weird apple parties floating around. On the hot & spicy side you'll find pie baking parties. On the weird, wild & wacky side you'll find what is known as "Bad Apple" parties. These parties are filled with fun apple entertainment and lots of apple related foods. Hey it's all in celebration of Apple Season so make plans for "your" apple party.

National Fall Hat Month: Men and women are encouraged to put aside their straw hats and begin wearing felt or fabric hats that are seasonal for the fall. So expect to see lots of wacky hat wearing this month. Hat-related activities are also encouraged too.

International Talk Like a Pirate Day - September 19
(ITLAPD) is a parodic holiday created in 1996 by John Baur (Ol' Chumbucket) and Mark Summers (Cap'n Slappy), of Albany, Oregon, U.S., who proclaimed September 19 each year as the day when everyone in the world should talk like a pirate. For example, an observer of this holiday would greet friends not with "Hello," but with "Ahoy, matey!" The holiday, and its observance, springs from a romanticized view of the Golden Age of Piracy.

The holiday is a major observance in the religion of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Top September Celebrations:

The Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the Moon Festival, Lantern Festival or Mooncake Festival, is a popular harvest festival celebrated by Chinese people and Vietnamese people (even though they celebrate it differently), dating back over 3,000 years to moon worship in China's Shang Dynasty.

The Mid-Autumn Festival is held on the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese calendar, which is usually around mid or late September in the Gregorian calendar. It is a date that parallels the autumn & spring Equinoxes of the solar calendar, when the moon is supposedly at its fullest and roundest.

•  Traditionally, on this day, Chinese family members and friends will gather to admire the bright mid-autumn harvest moon, & eat moon cakes and pomeloes together.

•  Accompanying the celebration, there are additional cultural or regional customs, such as: Putting pomelo rinds on one's head, carrying brightly lit lanterns, lighting lanterns on towers, floating sky lanterns, burning incense in reverence to deities,  planting Mid-Autumn trees, collecting dandelion leaves and distributing them evenly among family members and fire Dragon Dances"

Did You Know!

In the United Kingdom, in the early autumn, fishermen often use the name of the grayling (Thymallus thymallus) as a by-word for their seasonal jolly:

A Grayling Day is fisherman-talk for a party. Many clubs as well as fisherman friends will organise their annual Grayling Day in the autumn when it is traditional for there to be large quantities of both food and drink -

Midnight Moon Parties:                            

The name for the Moon in September is Harvest Moon, Blood Moon and Fruit Moon.

Is there a Full Moon in August?
Well most of the time it is and that means midnight moon parties! Yep it's a fun thing to do and easy to plan for too. The party takes place outside under the light of the moon. A few candles is all you need to see the table of food and drinks and the entertainment itself is watching the skies.

Gnocchi Day (29) ArgentinaFood Holiday
"The Europeans brought many of their influences to Argentina and one of their great contributions was the gnocchi. Apparently Argentineans were pretty impressed with this food because it not only received its own day of the year, it received its own 12 days of the year. The 29th of every month is Gnocchi Day, (or as the Argentineans call it “ñoquis del 29″)"
