Saturday is upon us as we inch closer and closer to fall, although you wouldn’t be blamed for thinking summer was already over. School is back. The nights are getting cooler. In some northern areas, leaves are just beginning to lose their green, exchanging it for a touch of yellow or orange.
Some people ignore the equinoxes and solstices and just go by month. For these strange people, September 1 marks the first day of fall. September, October and November all fall under this season. Then December, January and February are winter. March, April and May constitute spring. And June, July and August constitute summer.
In some ways, it’s simpler than the official seasons, which all change around the 20th of each respective month. The next four quarters of the season will take place on the following dates:
- Autumn Equinox — September 23, 2023 at 2:50 a.m. ET
- Winter Solstice — December 21, 2023 at 10:27 p.m. ET
- Vernal Equinox (Spring) — March 19, 2024 at 11:06 p.m. ET
- Summer Solstice — June 20, 2024 at 4:51 p.m. ET
I guess I have a natural inclination towards this way of thinking about the seasons because summer often begins on my birthday, June 20th. But it’s definitely harder to remember!

Wordle bot analysis
After every word I solve, I head to to Wordle Bot homepage to see how my guessing game was.
Today it was mostly, um, lucky from beginning to end. My opening guess, token, left me with a respectable 77 words remaining. Caulk I reduced this number to just 1. How lucky! Huzzah!
PS Somehow I programmed the incorrect version of this message which had half of yesterday’s message mixed with this and yesterday’s word, wake. My excuses!
The score of the day
I get 1 point for guessing in three and 1 point for beating the Bot, who got it in four! And also a lot of luck! 2 points ! Huzzah!
The etymology of today’s words
The word “lucky” has an interesting etymology. It is believed to come from the Middle Low German word “lūk”, meaning “good fortune” or “happiness”. This Middle Low German word is believed to be derived from the Old High German word “luc”, which also means “happiness” or “joy”.
The word “lucky” in English began to be used in the 15th century, initially meaning “occurring by chance” or “occurring by chance.” Over time, its meaning evolved to mean someone or something favored by fortune or chance, hence the modern feeling of being lucky or lucky.
