Friday Five: September Blessings

I had a Flintstones lunch box a lot like this one
Today's RevGalBlogPals Friday Five as posted by kathrynzj:

Headquarters for me is the northeast of the United States. Here school is getting back in session, the tease of autumn is in the air (or the hope for the tease of autumn is in the air) and church life is gearing up to full throttle.

One thing I've learned with blogging and social media is that the where I live is not necessarily where you live. And so I want to know what September means to you, in your place of the world and time in your life.
This week's Friday Five is:
What are 5 things that the beginning of September mean to you?

Bonus: What's one thing you could do without?

Thanks, Kathryn, for posting this one!  

September is my favorite month and here are a few reasons why:
  • September starts with a holiday weekend.  Yea, Labor Day!
  • September is my birthday month.  My birthday sometimes falls on a national holiday, as it does this year.  Sweet!
  • Back to school clothes and school supplies.  Still love 'em.
  • The color red.  Tinged leaves, school house icons, apples -- all in my signature color.
  • A mini-New Year-type season of new beginning.  A good time to reassess and regroup and start anew.
Bonus: I could most definitely do without the October, November, and/or December holiday "buy me" displays and ads making their initial appearance in my favorite month.

It's weird how the holiday displays have gotten so early, I totally agree.
And, Happy Birthday!!!

Happy birthday, and I can resonate to all your likes except that my birthday is in July.

I loved your mention of the reds. Thank you for playing!

I know! I was in a warehouse store last week (still August!) and there was the Christmas stuff.

It is a kind of a new year, isn't it. I used to always feel like I was getting a chance at a fresh start whenever I saw ads and catalogs featuring fall clothing.
