September Holidays in Japan



September 18 (M) - Respect for the Aged Day - 敬老の日(けいろうのひ)

The third Monday of September is Respect for the Aged Day, a national holiday in Japan.  On keiro no hi, neighborhoods will have volunteers distribute free “obento” boxed lunches to elderly people in the neighborhood and smaller villages will hold keirokai shows where the younger people and school children prepare dances and songs for a special keirokai ceremony. The elderly attendees are also treated to lunch, tea, and sweets.   [Source:  PlanetTokyo.com]

September 23 (Sa) - Autumnal Equinox - 秋分の日(しゅうぶんのひ)

September 23 or 24 is Autumnal Equinox Day, a national holiday. It's a day not just to mark the changing of seasons but also to pay respects to deceased parents, grandparents, and other family members.  The autumnal equinox is the day when the sun crosses the equator from the Northern to the Southern Hemisphere. By the modern Gregorian calendar, this date usually falls on September 22 or 23. On this day, the sun rises exactly in the east and sets exactly in the west, and day and night become the same length. From this day on, days begin getting shorter than nights in the Northern Hemisphere.   [Source:  Kids Web Japan]
