Just a Little Fun – Fun Facts – August
While August can bring joy to parents and sadness to kids as they get ready to return to school, it also is the last full month of summer.
August was originally called Sextilis which is Latin for “sixth month” (the first month in the Roman calendar is March) but was renamed for Augustus Caesar in 8 BC. He chose this month not because it was his birth month as was customary, but to mark the defeat of Cleopatra as this was her birth month.
The birth flower for August is Poppy or Gladiolus. The modern birthstone is Peridot (success, protection, dignity and fame) and the traditional birthstone is Sardonyx (security and relaxation).
