October is one of my favorite months because of Halloween on the 31st but there are a lot of other holidays during the month you can look forward to and celebrate, or express appreciation for someone the holiday reminds you of—-by sending them a MemoryTag greeting card.
October 1 is National Homemade Cookie Day and October 2 National Custodial Worker Day, and how best to celebrate than give your favorite janitor some homemade cookies and a thank-you MemoryTag card.
Think of all a janitor does, sweeping out trash and cleaning up dirt and old jock straps smelling and rotting in sports gym lockers whose former owners abandoned them. Without janitors it would be a filthy world let them know you appreciate them. https://memorytag.cards/collections/thank-you
October 2 is also National Name Your Car Day and I don’t know about you but I will call mine a piece of “Sh’t” because it failed to pass a smog test and now I have to junk the car because of a government (DMV) directive. Perhaps you’re a little more pleased with your vehicle. I’m happy for you.
October 3 is Virus Appreciation Day and I have to ask is this a joke and if it’s not I’ve got a card I can send to you that says “Take your virus and shove it up your keister.”
October 5 is National Do Something Nice Day and we can all think of someone we could do something nice for and one of the best ways is to tell them you appreciate them with a greeting card.
October 4 is National Frappe Day celebrating an iced cream de menthe liquor drink and is also by chance National Kale Day…..you know kale? That weed-looking thing in the store vegetable section that is good for you but you never eat. Instead, put some kale in your booze drink and get more healthy.
Octoberfest on the 8th is a German holiday that I celebrate even though I am not German because I like to drink beer and the same day is American Touch Tag Day and so I am thinking of combining both by drinking beer with some Germans and playing touch football the same afternoon.
What about that International Skeptics Day on the 13th? I don’t believe there is such a holiday do you?
Be Bald and Free Day celebrated on the 14th is easy to understand. If you’re bald you are free of worry about losing your hair.
White Cane Safety Day is on the 15th and I can’t understand how it can make you safer unless because it’s white drivers can see you in the dark, or you can use it to bash a mugger over the head who can also see it in the dark.
The 22nd is Mother-In-Law Day and many of us have no reason to celebrate that and in fact perhaps it should be for all of us a day of mourning.
The 16th is Bosses Day. This one is easy. You either buy and send a thank you card, or send a “You’re an assho’e” card. MemoryTag has all kinds of both. https://memorytag.cards/collections/daily-douche
TV Talk Show Host Day on October 23 is also hard for me to understand because why would we think up a holiday that only Pat Sajak and Vanna White can celebrate?
National Mole Day I like better, because when was the last time you became angered by a mole? You get pissed off by dysfunctional family, disloyal friends, two-timing boy and girl friends—–but never a mole.
The observance of Punk for a Day Day on the 25th means little to me because I spend the other 351 days of the year acting like a punk, so I will reverse it and not act like one on this one day only.
The 29th is National Frankenstein Friday Day and the only thing I can up with here is Frankenstein is the clumsiest, slowest most un-scary monster in movie history always stumbling around and flailing his arms and groaning “Aaahhhh! Neahhhh! He’s so slow it takes him a full day all day Friday to try and scare you.
And then of course Halloween.
Kids in costumes walking around at night tripping and falling in the dark scraping their chins, begging candy to rot their teeth and make dentists rich, neighbors running out of candy and turning off the lights in the house and blowing the candle out on the pumpkin so more kids won’t come and wind up empty-handed.
I love it.
