October 18 - No Beard Day - Well, this is a no brainer for me, but for people like Andy Hull of Manchester Orchestra the beard IS the identity!

October 18 - World Menopause day - Origin of this Holiday?

"The International Menopause Society, in collaboration with the World Health Organization, has designated October 18 as World Menopause Day." "In observation of the day, the IMS, through its organ the Council of Affiliated Menopause Societies, distributes sample press materials to inform women about menopause, its management and the impact of estrogen loss." "World Menopause Day can also be a call to implement policies that support research and treatment in the area of menopausal health."

October 21 - Babbling Day - oops, it appears I have been celebrating this day on the wrong date, actually I have been celebrating it on many dates BECAUSE I didn't know the proper date, for you see I am a bit of a blatherskite. Now that I know the appropriate date I will do it up BIG and blabber away, but I refuse to not celebrate on other days. I enjoy my babble, I enjoy other peoples babble as well - just not as much as my own. I often enjoy babbling in different languages as well. it makes me happy.

October 23 - Canned Food Day - I am not sure why this day is celebrated but I think it may be a reminder that cold days are coming and it is a good time to purchase some extra canned goods and drop them off at your local food bank

October 23 - Tv Talk Show Host Day or Stay up Late Day (to watch those awesome late night talk shows!) - This very special day is celebrated on the birth date of legendary night time talk show host Johnny Carson. Carson is considered the "King of late night Television". He hosted The Tonight Show from 1962 to 1992. His reign lasted a record 29 years, 7 months, 21 days. There were 1,859 episodes. Who is your favorite?

Almost all of the more than100 countries in the world are members of this organization.

October 24 - Make a Difference Day - Initiated in 1990, this is a national day is for devoted to helping others by doing volunteer work in the community. The activity can be almost anything. Millions of Americans participate in community improvement projects. It takes the form of cleanup, fixup, painting, and repair in poorer neighborhoods, parks and municipal facilities. It doesn't matter what project you take on. It doesn't matter whether you help a non-profit organization, the community, your town, nursing home, a church, a food kitchen, or any other group in need. What matters is that you participate. Did You Know? Each year on Make a Difference Day, ex-President Jimmie Carter gets out his hammer and saw ,and helps to build or rebuild housing in underprivileged areas. There is not better example of people helping others than this!

October 24- National Crazy Day - Shall we celebrate the crazy people in our lives or the crazy lives we live? How about just going crazy for the day and doing something crazy? you know: burping outloud and saying "what was that?". NOT turning on your computer and relaxing instead. breakfast for dinner. wear purple WITH orange. putting on that lipstick you know is not your color but you like it. sending a "I love your cat" card to your neighbor for no reason....the possibilities are ENDLESS!!

October 24 - Sour Day - U like sour candy? don't be sour - have some and pucker up and celebrate!!

October 24 - National Bologna Day - I am going to admit that I am not a bologna fan, although it's hard for me to remember that there are all kinds of bologna, there definitely is variety. There is what you and I would call regular Bologna, German Bologna, Beef Bologna, Kosher Bologna, and more. Depending upon the kind of Bologna, it could include pork, beef, chicken, and spices. It's easy to enjoy National Bologna Day . Have a Bologna sandwich. And, don't forget the mustard.

I remember Mole Day from when I took chemistry in high school. The students taking enriched chemistry in my school celebrated it on October 23rd (10/23). The students taking college prep chemistry (like me) celebrated it on June 2nd (6/2).
