I have a bittersweet love for September. On the sweet side is the influx of skimmers, relief from humidity, and the sunny robins-egg blue sky—the best of summer’s weather as long as hurricanes behave.
The bitter is summer’s looming end, begging the question; on which side of the list do quieter beaches belong?
Sure, I love that with fewer tourists parking will be a non-issue until next May or June. And yet, I admit it. I may be the only year-round-local who actually misses the tourist and laments that September means that for the slocals—the down-all-summer-locals— it’s time to pack-up and go home.
To make sure this September the sweet out-balances the bitter, I’m celebrating a few extra holidays from a quirky September holiday list I found on line.
In honor of Read a Book Day on September 6, and International Literacy Day on September 8, I’m celebrating with a chance to win books giveaway on my Facebook Author Page.

A couple of other quirky holidays you may want to celebrate with me:
- September 3 International Bacon Day —A day to celebrate bacon! Who knew?
- September 13 Positive Thinking Day —Because who can’t benefit from a few happy thoughts?
- September 18 Wife Appreciation Day —Just happens to coincide with our 34th Wedding Anniversary. How cool is that?
The stores may be displaying Halloween, but I resolve to enjoy September one day at a time. How about you? What are the things about September that mean the most to you?
