Wednesday, the 23rd of September, 2015 is the 266th day in 2015 and in the 39th calendar week.
General Events:
International Celebrate Bisexuality Day
September 23, 2015 in the World
Celebrate Bisexuality Day (Bi Visibility Day) is observed on September 23 by members of the bisexual community and their supporters since 1999. The day aims to provide a platform to the bisexual community and their supporters and to bring global attention to the social, economic and cultural prejudices and challenges faced by bisexual people.
The main purpose of the day was to bring visibility to a community that has for long been ignored, marginalized and discriminated against by some in both the straight and greater LGBT communities. This was the first time that an observance solely for the bisexual community was instituted.
The day aims to celebrate the bisexual community, its culture, history and norms. It is also aimed towards bringing more visibility to bisexual persons and the challenges they face in the world because of such identification.
While records have shown that several cultures throughout history openly embraced bisexuality, in recent years the LGBT community and especially the bisexual community has been marginalized.

Restless Legs Syndrome Awareness Day
September 23, 2015 in the USA
Restless Legs Awareness Day aims to promote awareness of this medical condition or syndrome. It is held on the same day each year to coincide with the birth date of Professor Karl-Axel Ekborn (born 23rd September 1907, died 1977). This eminent Swedish neurologist first wrote and described the disease in 1945. Since then, a lot has been learned about its symptoms although (to date) there is no known primary cause. It may be associated with dopamine or blood iron levels.
Characterised by urges to move the legs even when at rest, it can also sometimes occur in the arms. Secondary causes include some medication or other pre-disposing medical conditions.
International Awareness Day aims to increase understanding of RLS and the jerky movements and in some cases distress caused. A cure is still being sought. In 2013, the North Carolina (USA) proclaimed that this day should be observed by all citizens.

National Checkers Day/Dog in Politics Day
September 23, 2015 in the USA
Surprisingly, Checkers Day (also known as Dogs in Politics Day) is not named for the classic game.
On September 23, 1952, Vice President candidate, Richard Nixon, gave a speech that was call the “Checkers Speech”.  He had been accused of improprieties relating to a fund established by his backers to reimburse him for his political expenses.  Wanting to defend himself as his place on the Republican ticket was in doubt, he flew to Los Angeles and delivered a half-hour television address.  It was in this speech that Nixon stated that regardless of what anyone said, he intended to keep one gift; a black-and-white dog that had been name Checkers by the Nixon children, thus giving the speech its popular name.
The “Checkers Speech” was seen, or heard, by about 60 million Americans, including the largest television audience to that time and it led to an outpouring of public support.
With Checkers the dog in the speech, that is also how it come to share the name Dogs in Politics Day.

Autumnal Equinox
September 23, 2015 in Northern Hemisphere
The first day of autumn is in 2015 on September 23 (according to the astronomical definition). It is also called the autumnal equinox, fall equinox or the beginning of autumn. Autumn is one of the four temperate seasons, the transition period between summer and winter usually in September (Northern Hemisphere) when the arrival of night becomes noticeably earlier.
The equinoxes might be expected to be in the middle of their respective seasons, but temperature lag (caused by the thermal latency of the ground and sea) means that seasons appear later than dates calculated from a purely astronomical perspective. According to United States unofficial tradition, autumn runs from the day after Labor Day through Thanksgiving, after which the holiday season that demarcates the unofficial beginning of winter begins.
Association with the transition from warm to cold weather, and its related status as the season of the primary harvest, has dominated its themes and popular images. Many cultures feature autumnal harvest festivals, often the most important on their calendars. Still extant echoes of these celebrations are found in the mid-autumn Thanksgiving holiday of the United States and Canada, and the Jewish Sukkot holiday. In the Northern Hemisphere, autumn is also associated with the Halloween season.
Autumn in poetry has often been associated with melancholy. The possibilities of summer are gone, and the chill of winter is on the horizon. Skies turn grey, and many people turn inward, both physically and mentally. Furthermore, autumn has a strong association with American football, as the regular season begins during September and ends with playoff competition in December or January, in the winter season
Note: The date September 23, 2015 is calculated for Eastern Standard Time (UTC-5). The exact date for autumnal equinox can vary in other time zones.

Mabon: Autumn Equinox
September 23, 2015 in the Northern Hemisphere
Gwyl canol Hydref or Mabon: (Also known as Harvest Home, Harvest Tide, Fall Equinox, Autumn Equinox etc., September 21-24).
Technically, an equinox is an astronomical point and, due to the fact that the earth wobbles on its axis slightly, the date may vary by a few days depending on the year. The autumnal equinox occurs when the sun crosses the equator on its apparent journey southward, and we experience a day and a night that are of equal duration. Up until Mabon, the hours of daylight have been greater than the hours from dusk to dawn. But from now on, the reverse holds true.
Mabon marks the middle of harvest, it is a time of equal day and equal night, and for the moment nature is in balance. It is a time to reap what you have sown, of giving thanks for the harvest and the bounty the Earth provides. For finishing up old projects and plans and planting the seeds for new enterprises or a change in lifestyle. Mabon is a time of celebration and balance.
This is the time to look back not just on the past year, but also your life, and to plan for the future. In the rhythm of the year, Mabon is a time of rest and celebration, after the hard work of gathering the crops. Warm autumn days are followed by chill nights, as the Old Sun God returns to the embrace of the Goddess.
The passing of Mabon is inevitable and The Sun God should be mourned. We too, must remember that all things must come to an end. As the Sun God journeys into the lands of winter and into the Goddess’ loving arms, endings are a good time to celebrate our successes, thank our selves and those who helped us, and take part in the balance of life!
