Month of June

June is a summer month in the northern half of the world, and a winter month in the southern half. It is named after Juno, the goddess of youth.

Identified as a counterpart to the Greek Hera, Juno was an important and powerful ancient Italian deity who became the protector of Rome, wife of Jupiter, queen of gods, and goddess of marriage, childbirth, and fertility.

According to tradition, the birthstones for June are pearl, alexandrite, and moonstone, all representing health and longevity. The June birth flowers are the rose (Rosa) and the honeysuckle (Lonicera caprifolium).

Holidays in June

The word holiday has differing connotations in different regions. It can exclusively be refer to the nationally, religiously or culturally observed day(s) of rest or celebration, or the events themselves. While the word june refer to the period of time where leave from one’s duties has been agreed.

The concept of holidays is also often originated in connection with religious observances. The intention of a holiday was typically to allow individuals to tend to religious duties associated with important dates on the calendar. In most modern societies, however, holidays serve as much of a recreational function as any other weekend days or activities.

June has its share of celebrations and holidays. As you probably know, it’s the month we honor the fathers in our lives with Father’s Day on the third Sunday in June (June 20, 2021) and commemorate the emancipation of the last enslaved African Americans on Juneteenth (June 19). The month of June is Pride Month, a month-long observance in celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people—and the history, culture, and contributions of these people and their communities.
