September (from Latin septem, 'seven') was originally the seventh of ten months on the oldest known Roman calendar, with March (Latin Martius) the first month of the year until perhaps as late as 153 BC. After the calendar reform that added January and February to the beginning of the year, September became the ninth month, but retained its name. It had 29 days until the Julian reform, which added a day.

September is the ninth month and the only month with the same number of letters in its name in English as the number of the month.

The last day of September in any year always falls on a different day of the week from the last day of any other month.

The autumnal equinox in the northern hemisphere and the vernal or spring equinox in the southern hemisphere occur on dates varying from 21 September to 24 September (in UTC).

In 325 A.D Nicene council officially adopted the 'Julian Calendar' which declared that 'a year would be 365 days and 6 hours long' and March 25th being the 'New year'. Many centuries passed and at last astronomers found out the flaw in Julian calendar which exceeded the newly measured 'Solar year' by 11 minutes. This amounted over time from 325 A.D to 1582 A.D, exceeding nearly 10 days! Pope Gregory XIII ordered a change from Julian to the Gregorian Calendar in 1582, they had to cut down 11 days! Therefore, days were cut out between 2nd and 14th September 1752.
