July is the seventh month of the year, named for Julius Caesar. In the northern hemisphere, July is usually the warmest part of the summer, and sometimes is called the dog days of summer, because of the rising of Sirius, the "dog" star. The full moon during July can have many names, Buck Moon, Blood Moon, Sturgeon Moon, Hay Moon, or the Full Thunder Moon. (My favorite is the Full Thunder Moon.)
Most of July's monthly celebrations seem to involve picnic-food. Maybe that means that we should all quit work and go on picnics every afternoon. Sweet! Anyone want to dare me?
