June is the sixth month of the calendar year and heralds the beginning of summer in the Northern hemisphere, and the start of winter in the South. Consequently, June has the longest number of daylight hours in the North and the shortest in the South.
The Latin term for June is Junius, named after the Roman Goddess Juno. She was the goddess of marriage which is one reason why the June is a popular for weddings
One of June's birthstones is the pearl, a symbol of purity and innocence. Its birth flower, the rose, represents love, passion and appreciation. Different rose colors have various meanings.
Oddly enough, June is both Candy Month and Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Month. Father’s Day is widely celebrated toward the end of the month and other dates includes Air Balloon Day on the 5th, Yoyo Day on the 7th and Celebration of the Sense Day on the 24th. It’s also Adopt-A-Cat Month and National Bathroom Reading Month. Those born in June could be friendly, soft-spoken, temperamental, picky, procrastinators, and day dreamers.
