Wake me up when September ends....


The ninth month of the year and the first official month of autumn. Of course, in Greece and the islands in particular, autumn comes later, so September is simply considered a continuation of summer! September, as the name suggests (sept), was the seventh month in the Roman calendar. In Greece, it is also known as "trigitis” (=grape harvester) as vines are harvested and stored to make wine. In Santorini of course, which is located on the south and has a warm climate, harvest usually ends in mid to late August. Finally, September in Greece is connected with the beginning of the school year, as students return to their schools!
