By Rachael Weiss~ Publisher Union County Macaroni Kid October 4, 2021

October is the month of falling leaves, a chill in the air, and the smell of pumpkin spice everything reminding us that Halloween is coming. Not that we need reminding. Like most of this year, Halloween is going to look different but by now we’ve learned to create fun experiences with our families no matter what. 

Celebrate these things all month long:

  • Adopt a Shelter Dog Month
  • Breast Cancer Awareness Month
  • Computer Learning Month 
  • Domestic Violence Awareness Month
  • Sarcastic Month...I mean seriously?

October 1 - International Coffee Day

October 4 - National Golf Day

  • My kids love to play - whether through their First Tee golf lessons, heading to the driving range or hitting up mini-golf. 

October 8 - World Egg Day

October 9 - Fire Prevention Day

October 10 - International Newspaper Carrier Day

October 11 - It's My Party Day

  • Celebrations have a whole new meaning after the last 20 months! Make sure to find a way to celebrate yourself with a dance party or special foods, maybe decorate your house or wear something special; today's the day to make it a party-day for you.

October 14: National Dessert Day

October 17 - National Pasta Day

October 21 - International Nacho Day 

  • When you think nachos, you think yummy snack right? Well, it doesn’t have to be. We love making pan sheet nacho night! It’s so easy. All you do is pile chips on top of a baking sheet and add whatever you love on top. Cheese, meat, refried beans, black beans, onions, black olives, salsa and bake it in the oven until everything is warm and bubbly. Serve with lettuce, tomatoes, guacamole, and sour cream on the side and you’ve got a filling and fun dinner. Do you have picky eaters? That’s ok you can create personal pan sheet nachos and get the kids to create their own. Here are 2 more recipes you can try on this day. 

October 25 - International Artist Day

October 29: Frankenstein Friday
