Weird September Holidays

September 1 – American Chess Day

September 2 – Bison-ten Yell Day

This interesting holiday is actually a play on words.  If you say “bison-ten yell” quickly, it sounds like bicentennial. 

This day celebrates the 200th birthday of the inventor of battle signals.  Soldiers had to memorize the meanings of ten different verbal signals given during a war. 

Honor this day by having a 200-year-old birthday party and learn a few secret signals to share with friends and family.
