October is “National Month” Calendar

How Businesses Celebrate the Month of October

October is "National Month" Calendar

Many countries adopt causes or a special interest group to promote during a calendar month. The United States is particularly prolific at creating "national month" events to promote business interests.

I might check my toilet to see if it needs repairs, but I will not let someone tell me when to hug a Texas chef! (I also think vegetarians and pork lovers should celebrate in different months.)

The following events are observed calendar month-long (unless otherwise indicated):
