Significant September Days

Happy September! Of course, September is about back to school and the change of seasons. We also have the first Presidential Debate to look forward to this month. Check out the calendar for fun things to do in September, including online events.

There are somber dates in September, as well, including the anniversary of the attacks on 9/11 and World Suicide Prevention Day.

Big celebrations in September include Labor Day, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Because of the Coronavirus, Oktoberfest was cancelled in Munich but you can still enjoy bratwurst while remaining safer at home.

Look for freebies and specials in September, especially on National Coffee Day. Talk like a pirate on September 19 at Krispy Kreme and you may score a free donut!

    Handy list – maybe I’ll post some of these on social media. It would be a nice change from my usual posts. 😉 Thanks!
