Date With Destiny

This will take time (excuse the pun).  'Date with destiny' is a calendar of dates and events, with an on-line hyperlink to a website covering the subject. I will try and cover every day between Jan 1st--dec 31st, so there is something for anyone trying to write fillers or short articles. Please bare with me as it develops. 

If you can supply any dates, with relevant hyperlinks, I'll be extremely grateful for the details.

General Snipbits - Date with Destiny

julypicJuly is the seventh month of the year (between June and August) in the Julian and Gregorian Calendars and one of seven months with the length of 31 days.

It was named by the Roman Senate in honor of the Roman general, Julius Caesar, it being the month of his birth. Prior to that, it was called Quintilis.

It is, on average, the warmest month in most of the Northern hemisphere (where it is the second month of summer) and the coldest month in much of the Southern hemisphere (where it is the second month of winter). The second half of the year commences in July. In the Southern hemisphere, July is the seasonal equivalent of January in the Northern hemisphere.

August August

General Snipbits - Date with Destiny

august1

This month was originally named Sextili in Latin, because it was the sixth month in the original ten-month Roman calendar under Romulus in 753 BC, when March was the first month of the year. 
  About 700 BC it became the eighth month when January and February were added to the year before March by King Numa Pompilius, who also gave it 29 days. Julius Caesar added two days when he created the Julian calendar in 45 BC giving it its modern length of 31 days.
In 8 BC it was renamed in honor of Augustus (despite common belief, he did not take a day from February).
  According to a Senatus consultum quoted by Macrobius, he chose this month because it was the time of several of his great triumphs, including the conquest of Egypt.

september

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 sixth month of the astrological calendar, which begins at the end of March/Mars/Aries.  September also marks the beginning of the ecclesiastical year in the Eastern Orthodox Church.

decpic

December was originally the tenth month of the year in the Roman calendar until a monthless winter period was divided between January and February. It gets its name from the Latin word "decem" which means ten.� However, when the Romans added January and February to the calendar, it became the twelfth month. The name remained the same.
