According to the Georgian calendar, which is used over most of the world today, June is the sixth month. On the Roman calendar, it was considered the fourth month and had only 29 days. Julius Ceasar gave the month 30 days in 46 B.C., when he reformed the Roman calendar.
Spring ends and summer begins around June 20, 21, or 22 in the Northern Hemisphere. It's the time that the flowers are beautiful. It is especially the month for roses. In the Southern hemisphere, winter begins during June, and it brings cold, rainy weather to this part of the world.
Gems for June are the pearl, alexandrite, and moonstone.
The rose is the flower for the month of June.
Then let us, one and all, be contented with our lot;
The June is here this morning, and the sun is shining hot;
Oh! let us fill our hearts up with the glory of the day,
And banish ev'ry doubt and care and sorrow far away.

It's Also Dare Day- a Challenging Day
When : Always June 1st
Dare Day is a day to challenge someone, and to do a dare yourself. It's a day that daredevils truly relish. Today is definitely a call to action. It is not a day for procrastinators or for hesitation. Dares take all forms and shapes. The type of dare is almost limitless. Whether it is a prank, a challenge to accomplish something, or a personal action (like asking someone out on a date), this is the day to make the dare. And, its the day to do the dare. We do suggest that dares be safe, and of course, legal....... Daring to the max: To dare someone to do something risky or challenging is one thing. Declaring the "double dog dare" heightens the challenge. The highest degree of challenge is to "triple dog dare" someone. It should not be used lightly, or frequently. The most important DARE: Is the D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program.
