October Observances

I just discovered that October is "Sausage Month".
And "Go Hog Wild- Eat Country Ham Month".

But, it's also "Vegetarian Month".

It's "Popcorn Poppin' Month"-
but it also includes "No Salt Week".

In October there's a "Fire Prevention Week"-
But also "National Bake and Decorate Month".

And who's the idiot that put "World Smile Day"
the same month as "National Grouch Day"?

Probably the same person that scheduled
"National Sarcastic Awareness Month"
along with "Mother-In-Law Day".

And a "Cut Out Dissection Month"that includes a "Frankenstein Friday".

October salutes "Positive Attitude Month"
right beside "World Menopause Day".
And "Peace, Friendship and Good Will Week"
next to "Cranky Co-Workers Day".

"National Face Your Fears Day"
occurs the same month as "Mammography Day".

They've also matched "National Dental Hygiene Month"
with "National Caramel Apple Day".  

And "Domestic Violence Awareness Month"
with "National Kick Butt Day".

"World Mental Health Day"
is separated only four days from
"Mad Hatter Day".

"Tackling Hunger Month" shares "National Chili Month".
"Worldwide Howl At The Moon Night" is celebrated this month,
as well as "Emotional Intelligence ".

What were they possibly thinking???

But, no matter how you spend October-
or what you choose to celebrate-
do it with style and a smile!

By the way- it's only
 78 days till Christmas...
