October Noms: Random Holiday Calender at UT Tyler

This is me and October!

Hey guys! It’s that time again! I’m back with my month segment, Random Holiday Calender. This month, we’re in for the quintessential pumpkin days, with all of the delicious sweets and spooks that come with Halloween! Who doesn’t love the cooling air, the harvest moons, and the new fashion statements that come with the first full month of autumn? Okay, okay. Not everyone shares the enthusiasm, I understand.

This could be you...?
Maybe you don’t like spooks and sweets for some reason. Maybe the coming cold weather makes you feel  like a hibernating bear. You know what? That’s okay! There’s 30 more holidays to celebrate this October to keep you joyful!

As usual, I thought you might first like to know what fun things you can celebrate all month long:

  • +Sarcastic Month – Yeah, because we need more of THAT going around. (Insert eye roll here)
  • +National Vegetarian Month- Don’t be stingy. You get the rest of the year to celebrate your meat!
  • +Cookie Month- Nom nom nom!
  • +Clergy Appreciation Month- Appreciate your religious leaders, y’all!
  • +International Drum Month- Boom boom boom!
  • +LGBT History Month- If you’re interested, it’s a good month to learn about it!

There’s a number of other more serious things to observe this month pertaining to illness and other heavy things, but the point of this blog is supposed to be how to have light-hearted fun this month. If you’re interested in those, though, you can see what other ones are here!
