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.
“Keep to your own pastures, bhikkhus, walk in the haunts where your fathers roamed.
If ye thus walk in them, Māra will find no lodgement, Māra will find no foothold.”
— Cakkavattisīhanāda Sutta

“What you heard from the perfected ones is right.

16. 'In what has the world originated?' — so said the Yakkha Hemavata, — 'with what is the world intimate? by what is the world afflicted, after having grasped at what?' (167)

17. 'In six the world has originated, O Hemavata,' — so said Bhagavat, — 'with six it is intimate, by six the world is afflicted, after having grasped at six.' (168)
