Proper Use of Capitals in Months, Holidays, and Days of the Week

Months, holidays, and days of the week are proper nouns, but seasons and the ordinal words of the days of the month are not.

Examples:

We celebrate Thanksgiving on the third Thursday of November. This year it is on the twenty-third of the month.
My mother's birthday is in the spring.
