Annie's "Month of July" Page

"While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat,
and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease."
~Genesis 8:22~

July is the seventh month of the year according to the Gregorian calendar, which is used in
almost all the world today. It was the fifth month in the early calendar of the ancient Romans.
The Romans called the month Quintilis, which means fifth. Later, the Romans moved the
beginning of the year to January 1, but did not change the names of the months. The Roman
statesman Julius Caesar was born during this month. In 46 B.C., Caesar gave Quintilis 31 days.
The Roman Senate renamed the month Julius in honor of Caesar.
In most countries in the Northern Hemisphere, July is usually the hottest month of the year.
In the Southern Hemisphere, July is one of the winter months. Except for cold Antarctica
and the cold rainy part of South America, the climate during July is mild in most
countries in the Southern Hemisphere.


Activities. In the northern half of the world, grass and leaves often lose their greenness if
there is little rain. But some flowers thrive on the heat and are most brilliant during July.
The air is full of the hum of insects, and birds dart everywhere in search of food.
July is a month of abundant life.


Special days.
In the United States, Independence Day is celebrated on July 4. On that day in
1776, the Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence. In France, a similar
holiday, Bastille Day, occurs on July 14. Several other countries celebrate national independence
in July. Canada celebrates July 1 as Canada Day. Independence Day is celebrated in Venezuela
on July 5; in Argentina, July 9; in Belgium, July 21; and in Peru, July 28.
Disability Independence Day July 26th, 1997 is the seventh anniversary of the signing
of the American with Disabilities Act (ADA). What are you doing to celebrate?


The special flower for July is the water lily.
The ruby is the gem for July.

Then came hot July, boiling like to fire,
That all his garments he had cast away.

The summer looks out from her brazen tower,
Through the flashing bars of July.

If the first of July be rainy weather,
It will rain, more or less, for four weeks together.

Hot July brings cooling showers,
Apricots and gillyflowers.
