The Seventh Month of the Year

July is the seventh month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian calendar. July was originally called Quintilis, which means fifth in Latin, because it was originally the fifth month in the ancient Roman calendar.

When January and February were added to the calendar, with January being the first month, Quintilis became the seventh month. The Roman Senate changed the name Quintilis to July in honor of Julius Caesar whose birthday was July 12.

In the northern hemisphere, July is the hottest month of summer while in the southern hemisphere, it is coldest month of winter.

The birthstone of July is the ruby.

Rubies symbolize fire and passion and brings light to dark places in your life.

The flower of July is the larkspur. It has either blue, white, purple, lavender, or pink flowers. The larkspur symbolizes an open heart and ardent attachment.
