As September rolls around and summer turns into fall, we can look forward to some significant holidays coming up. Whether it be Halloween or Christmas or Thanksgiving, there are some dates coming up that will give us time to rest, refuel, relax and of course, eat! But here are 9 upcoming events that you might not have known about before. But before we move onto September we must first acknowledge ‘The Great American Eclipse’ that will cover the United States on August 21st. The event refers to the total solar eclipse that will cover the sky.
These are events that are coming up that you might want to keep an eye out for.
From political days, to days of remembrance, here are 9 important events that are going to happen within the next 40 days.
- On September 1st, a ban will be imposed on all US citizens from going to North Korea. The first day of September also marks FEMA’s (Federal Emergency Management Agency’s) National Preparedness Month.
And this year, September 11 is the 16th anniversary since the Twin Towers were destroyed.
On September 20th, that is the day when Rosh Hashanah begins once the sun sets. The holiday is the Jewish New Year and it literally translates to ‘day of shouting/blasting.’
September 21 of each year is the United Nations’ International Day of Peace. It is a day to commemorate and recognize the efforts of those who have worked hard to end violence and promote peace.
September 23 is rumored to be the Revelation 12 sign which is an apocalyptic belief based on the time of Jacob’s Trouble that supposedly marks the end of the world.
September 24 is the day when national elections will be held in Germany and this could have significant impacts on countries who are allied with them (such as Canada and the United States.)
September 29 is when Yom Kippur begins at sunset. Yom Kippur is regarded as the ‘Sabbath of Sabbaths’ and on this day, forgiveness of sins is asked of God.
And finally on September 30th, Yom Kippur ends and it is also the day when Congress needs to pass their budget. If that doesn’t happen there could be a government shutdown just like the one back in 2013.
