Holidays in September (2018 Calendar)

Welcome, everybody, to September, the 9th month of the year. September is also Hispanic Heritage Month, Classical Music Month, and Self Improvement Month. As a continuation of last month, I’ll do my best to have more than American holidays in this list. If a country isn’t named in conjunction with the holiday, just assume that it’s America. And yes, I know that this is late going up. I got caught up with school work. Give me a small break.
