The month of August is named in honor of Augustus Caesar and previously went by the name “Sextilis.” Sextilis referred to the sixth month of the Gregorian calendar before January and February were added at the start of the year. Historians theorize that August has 31 days because Augustus wanted the month to have the same number of days as July, which was named in honor of his uncle, Gaius Julius Caesar. The traditional birthstone of August is peridot, and the gladiolus and poppy are the month’s traditional flowers. This 8th month of the year is also is the last full month of summer.
