Hurray!!! Another month is here once again. Happy New month to you all♡♡. The month of July marks the end of the first half of the year and the beginning of another. Although not all of us got to see this new month, it is a privilege to be here. It has been a year I’m yet to describe. A year that will never be forgotten in the history of mankind. Directly or indirectly, in this year, we’ve lost loved ones across the globe.
In the past month, in my country we lost some notable figures. Amongst them, Nigerian/American radio presenter: Dan Foster, Nigerian philanthropist and Event planner per excellence: Ibidun Ighodalo and many more. But even as we mourn them, let us take this vital lesson from life; nobody stays here forever. So let us make the best of life while we can. That being said, like every other month, I’m going to give you some quick facts about the month of July.
July is the seventh month of the year(between June and August) in the Julian and Gregorian calenders. It is the fourth month of seven months to have a length of 31 days. It was named by the Roman senate in honour of Julius Caesar, it being his birth month. He was a Roman general and statesman who played a critical role in the events that led to the demise of the Roman Republic and the rise of the Roman empire.
. July’s birth stone is the ruby which symbolises contentment.
.It’s birth flowers are the Larkspur or the water lily.
