uposatha is supposed to be kept the 14th and 15th of the lunar fortnight, so according to my calendar that is september 12 and september 13
That's just your opinion. The Theravāda understanding of cātuddase pannarase aṭṭhamiyā ca is that uposatha falls on the fourteenth day when it's a 14-day half-month, on the fifteenth day when it's a 15-day half-month, and on the eighth day of every half-month.

“What you heard from the perfected ones is right.
