October HoliDailys 

 

When it comes to special occasions, October has a slew of traditional holidays, not-so-traditional holidays and downright wacky holidays. While some honor special people, important historical events, momentous occasions or worthwhile causes, other October holidays celebrate fabulous food, refreshing beverages and just-plain-fun events!
