September 21 is a date to remember for Earth, Wind & Fire fans

The memorable date of September is a day to remember because of its reference to Earth, Wind & Fire’s 1978 hit September. 

As fans will know, the date features at the start of the first verse as the lyrics reflect on the “21st night of September.”

While you may have grown up with the song, its annual celebration online appears to be quite recent. As explained by Know Your Meme, while the track resurfaced online in the early 2010s, it started to take off following its trending on Vine.

The song’s popularity has continued as it currently has over a billion streams on Spotify, with Forbes reporting in 2020 that it was certified by the Recording Industry Association of America as 6x platinum.

In recent years the day has evolved into an annual celebration with Earth, Wind & Fire even joining in:
