October is....

I am sure most everyone knows that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, so wear a pink ribbon, donate to a charity, shop in places that donate portions of their proceeds.
October is more than just breast cancer awareness month, apparently there is quite a lot to be aware of and to celebrate this month. I found an interesting list of topics that you may not know are associated with this month.

• Adopt a Shelter Dog Month
• American Pharmacist Month
• Apple Jack Month
• Awareness Month
• Breast Cancer Awareness Month
• Clergy Appreciation Month
• Computer Learning Month
• Cookie Month
• Domestic Violence Awareness Month
• Eat Country Ham Month
• International Drum Month
• Lupus Awareness Month
• National Diabetes Month
• National Pizza Month
• National Vegetarian Month
• National Popcorn Popping Month
• Sarcastic Month
• Seafood Month

Weekly Celebrations:
• Week 1 Get Organized Week
• Week 1 Customer Service Week
• Week 2 Fire Prevention Week
• Week 2 Pet Peeve Week
• Week 3 Pastoral Care Week

I may get into more detail on some of these because some of them are very important to me and some of them are just plain fun. But, for now, just think about these, and if you decide to blog on any of them, feel free to post a link in the comments section of this post.

Happy October!!
