2. The Romans believed that September was looked after by the god of fire. So they always expected fires and volcanic eruptions to occur during this month.
3. Out of all 12 months of the year, September is spelled with the most letters. It contains nine letters, and it happens to be the ninth month of the year. No other months have the same amount of letters as their number in the calendar year.
