The Low Carb Diabetic: Welcome June 2024

As we welcome June – did you know:-
June used to be the fourth month in the year. Before Julius Caesar came to power, the calendar year only had 10 months. In 46 BC he created the Julian calendar by adding two more months to the year, which made June the sixth month.

June was called the “sera monath” (also known as dry month) by the Anglo-Saxons.

The month of June is believed to be named after Juno the Greek goddess.

The beautiful Rose and Honeysuckle are the birth flowers of June.

June has three birthstones – alexandrite, moonstone, and pearl. Alexandrite is said to represent longevity and health. Moonstones on the other hand are said to bring good luck and are associated with love and passion. Finally, we have pearls, the main birthstones of June. Above all else, pearls represent purity and faith.

If you were born in June, then you’re one of two star signs. If you were born on or before June 20th then you’re a Gemini. Gemini’s are said to be passionate, adaptable, and smart. If you’re born on or after the 21st of June, then you have the Cancer star sign. Those born under the Cancer sign are said to be loyal friends with great emotional depth.

The 5th of June is the World Environment Day, which raises awareness about our environment across the planet.

The 16th of June is Fresh veggies day.
