October has a few well known holidays like Columbus Day, which is observed on the second Monday in October (October 10 this year), Yom Kippur on October 11, and Halloween on October 31. Here are some perhaps lesser known dates of interest this month. I hope you’ll recognize a few. Several are very worthy.
International Day for the Elderly – October 1
World Smile Day – October 7 (first Friday of the month)
Sweetest Day – October 15 (third Saturday of the month)
Boss’s Day – October 16
Make a Difference Day – October 22 (fourth Saturday of the Month)
