American Business Women’s Day
September 22 marks the 1949 founding date of the American Business Women’s Association, the mission of which is ”to bring together businesswomen of diverse occupations and to provide opportunities for them to help themselves and others grow personally and professionally through leadership; education, networking support and national recognition”.
American Business Women’s Day was recognized in 1983 and 1986 by Congressional resolution and a proclamation issued by President Ronald Regan. It commemorates the important legacy and contributions of the more than 68 million American working women and 7.7 million women business owners.
The Start of Oktoberfest!
(September 22 – October 7)
Oktoberfest is a 16-day festival held annually in Munich, Bavaria, Germany, running from late September to the first weekend in October. It is one of the most famous events in Germany and is the world’s largest fair, with more than 5 million people attending every year. To the locals, it is not called Oktoberfest, but “die Wiesn” – after the colloquial name of the fairgrounds themselves. The Oktoberfest is an important part of Bavarian culture, having been held since 1810. Other cities across the world also hold Oktoberfest celebrations, modeled after the original Munich event.
