October – maybe one of my favorite months of the year! Almost everyone thinks about Halloween and Pumpkin Spice Lattes when they think about October. But did you know that October also is the month we celebrate National PoetryDay and National Art Day? If you enjoy politics, mark the dates for the Vice Presidential and Presidential debates. They should be interesting.
