The best month in the whole year.
Mostly because of Halloween.
If I was wealthy I would have my own haunted house.
But I'm not.
So, I can't.
BUT...I can tell you about all the other wonderful things that happen this month as well as Halloween!
Did you know that its also:
*Adopt a Shelter Dog Month
*National Bake and Decorate Month
*National Caramel Month
*National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
*National Popcorn Poppin' Month
*Self Promotion Month
*National Storytelling Week 7-9
*Fire Prevention Week 9-15
*Teen Read Week 16-22
*International Magic Week 25-31
There are a ton of daily observances too. I get all my awesome and strange holiday information from here.
Fire Prevention Week is big around here. Our Fire Department goes to all the school with equipment and gear to show the kids.
If you see information about an Fire Department open house in your area, you should go. Our guys are all volunteers and they attend a tremendous amount of training and they would love to show the public what they can do.
At our open house they normally get a car that they can practice cutting up with the Jaws of Life and other equipment. They walk you through their different gear and show you all the apparatus. It's a great day for kids and adults to get to know the members.
I'm still waiting for my son to make his final costume selection for Halloween. I think its down to Thor, Bumblebee, Captain America, Harry Potter, Iron Man or a zombie.
It's tough..all these decisions at five.
Come by tomorrow for the Insecure Writers Support Group post!
