September Holidays and Special Days

September is back-to-school season. Naturally, with children refocusing on their studies, young adults going away to college and uni for the first time, September is a good month to talk about organisation, schedules and routines. Some of us find it difficult this month to switch out of holiday mode and back into work mode. Posts that are light and reliable can inspire your audience and help them as they transition. September is filled with food and health-related month-long observances. On a week-by-week basis, we move away from the health focus just a bit and start looking at technology. Of course, September is filled with festive special days - there's an occasion to observe or celebrate on most days, helping us fly through this pivotal month.
