The month when high air temperatures begin. It starts in August especially in the area surrounding Arizona which started south of american. People flock to beaches, outdoor concerts. We shared the holiday days that took place in August.

Now I want to talk a little about what August means. August comes from the Latin word augustus, meaning consecrated or venerable, which in turn is related to the Latin augur, meaning consecrated by augury or auspicious. In 8 B.C. the Roman Senate honored Augustus Caesar, the first Roman emperor, by changing the name of their month Sextilis to Augustus. Middle English speakers inherited the name of the month of August, but it wasn't until the mid-1600s that 'august' came to be used generically in English, more or less as augustus was in Latin, to refer to someone with imperial qualities. source
