Oh, the dog days of summer. June brings the beginning of summer, which means barbecues, hot weather, water fun, and lots of sun. As the weather and temperature changes bring forth the need to pull out our cooler clothes, it is interesting to think about the origin of the month of June.
It is believed that June is derived from the Roman goddess Juno, wife of Jupiter, who was the goddess of marriage and childbirth. This may explain why June is the most popular month for weddings. Within the pre-Caesar Roman calendar, June had only 20 days instead of 30. The additional day was added when the winter months were provided with two months while extra days were added to the calendar.
As we make the transition into hotter weather, please be mindful of drinking more water, not leaving pets in the car, water safety, and using sunscreen. Let’s go out and have safe fun in the sun!
