The Month of July

By | Jul 1, 2008

In the ancient Roman Calendar Quintilis was the fifth month of the year. It was renamed July for Julius Ceasar who was born in the month. Quintilis is latin for fifth.

July and April each year begins on the same day of the week and in a leap year also January.

On average the month of July is the warmest month in the Northern hemisphere and coldest in the Southern.

The full moon in July is called the summer moon. It has also been called The Full Buck Moon. It is in July that the new antlers of buck deer push out of their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur. It was also often called the Full Thunder Moon, for the reason that thunderstorms are most frequent during this time. Another name for this month’s Moon was the Full Hay Moon.

The ancient Greek often held their Olympic games in July.

Many counties celebrate an Independence day in July. The United States on July 4, the French has Bastille Day on July 14, Canada Day is July 1. Venezuela’s Independence Day is July 5, Argentina on July 9, Belgium, July 21 and on July 28 Peru.
