Observances

6 Oct

There’s a day or month for almost everything you can think of, and even some things you never would have thought of.

I prefer the days to the months, simply because months don’t offer any freebies. McDonald’s and 711 just celebrated National Coffee Day by giving away free regular size coffees all day. At my local 711, only until the free supply ran out!

But that’s OK, as I also love 711’s annual Free Slurpee Day! You get a small cup of the slushie drink of your choice and they include a sugar-free option too—yep, ’til their specified cutoff time.

Another is Free [ice cream] Cone Day, which is also great. Carvel’s, the 34th St location in NYC, served up Jr. cones for everyone. Hey, it was just enough to wet your palate and satisfy your sugar craving. Besides, the price was right: free.

Anyway, October has a laundry list of observances. I’ve listed a few of them here courtesy of: http://holidayinsights.com/moreholidays/october.htm

  • American Pharmacist Month
  • Adopt a Shelter Dog Month
  • Caramel Month
  • Breast Cancer Awareness Month
  • Clergy Appreciation Month
  • Computer Learning Month
  • Cookie Month
  • Domestic Violence Awareness Month
  • Eat Country Ham Month
  • Lupus Awareness Month
  • National Diabetes Month
  • National Pizza Month
  • National Vegetarian Month
  • National Popcorn Popping Month
  • Sarcasm Month
  • Seafood Month

Which ones will you indulge? Take your pick. Oct’s chuck full of ’em, and there’ll be more come next month…
