October is a time to celebrate.

Bobbie Siegle writes in her column, Laughing Matters on the News Times (Danbury , CT) Website that there is more than just stamp collecting to celebrate this month.

"It is the national month for many things, including country music, car care, stamp collecting, cosmetology, clocks, and book fairs, as well as awareness of AIDS, collegiate alcoholism, mental illness and breast cancer, among other things," writes Siegle.

According to Siegle there are also lots of things that have their own day this month besides Halloween.

Special days include...
  • Moldy Cheese Day (Oct. 9)
  • Be Bald and Free Day (Oct. 14)
  • Mother-in-Law Day (Oct. 23)
  • National Bologna Day (Oct. 24)
  • Denim Day (Oct 25th)
  • Plush Animal Lovers Day (Oct. 28)
Might make for an interesting topical collection and exhibit - October holidays.
