National Holidays in October

30151-october-quote

Did you know that there is at least one national holiday for every day of the year in America, and sometimes there are several holidays on the same day? Just think how much celebrating we’ve been missing out on by only observing the “big” national holidays, like Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day! In October alone, there are fun holidays like Be Bald and Be Free Day, whatever that means, (October 14) and National Bologna Day (October 24) to celebrate. Here is just a small sample of obscure holidays the Library can help you celebrate this month:

October 1 National Vegetarian Day

October 15Sweetest Day
