What is October the National Month for?

October has always been known for its spookiness. Everyone associates October with Halloween. Near the end of September, people get pumped for all the Halloween fun that's creeping around the corner. But, do they know what else October is known for? 

Do YOU know what else October is known for? (besides pumpkins and fall, of course.) 

I'm going to list a couple of things that October is also known for, that most people don't know, hope you enjoy! 

Here it goes: 

  • National Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month 
  • Dwarfism/Little People Awareness Month
  • Squirrel Awareness & Appreciation Month
  • Pickled Peppers Month 
  • Popcorn Popping Month
  • Vegetarian Month 
  • Breast Cancer Awareness Month
  • Positive Awareness Month
  • National Month of Sarcasm 
  • Clergy Awareness Month 
  • Pizza Month
  • Cyber Security Month 
  • National Down Syndrome Awareness Month
  • National Roller Skating Month 

If you didn't know these facts, well now you do. I'm sure some of them sound a little silly, but it's what makes them all the more interesting. I don't know about you, but I'm stoked for it being Squirrel Awareness & Appreciation Month. I'm going to show the squirrels some love this month.
