Month of October

In October, autumn comes into full swing. Let’s get in the fall mood! This month’s name stems from Latin octo, “eight,” because this was the eighth month of the early Roman calendar. When the Romans converted to a 12-month calendar, the name October stuck despite that fact that it’s now the 10th month!

October is the second month of fall in the northern half of the world. In the southern half, it is the second month of spring.

The Saxons called the month Wintirfyllith because it had the first full moon of the winter season.

Holidays in October

The word holiday has differing connotations in different regions. It can exclusively be refer to the nationally, religiously or culturally observed day(s) of rest or celebration, or the events themselves. While the word may refer to the period of time where leave from one’s duties has been agreed.

The concept of holidays is also often originated in connection with religious observances. The intention of a holiday was typically to allow individuals to tend to religious duties associated with important dates on the calendar. In most modern societies, however, holidays serve as much of a recreational function as any other weekend days or activities.
