The great Roman General Julius Caesar was born July 13, 100 B.C. Julius felt that the Roman Calendar at the time was inaccurate and manipulated for political purposes, so the calendar was changed to 365 days a year, and 366 days every fourth year and called the Julian calendar. The month of July was named in honor of Julius Caesar. Years later, the calendar was changed slightly by Pope Gregory XIII and renamed the Gregorian calendar.

July 4th is the date for the National holiday, Independence Day.  On Independence Day, there are parades and fireworks ( “Uhh!  Ahh!”) in many cities.  The Minnesota summer is usually very nice because it’s not as humid here as in most of Japan.  As for temperatures, believe it or not, it becomes quite hot since this state is located inland.  The temperature sometimes climbs up to 100 F
38 Cin summer while it dips to -30 F (-34 C) in the winter.  The temperature difference between the maximum and minimum temperature is 130 F (72 C)!

From June through Labor Day (First Mon. in September), It's Festival Time!  There are Street Festivals, City Festivals, County Fairs, and the Minnesota State Fair (the Wisconsin Fair < www.wistatefair.com/wp/ >), the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, etc: See our
