Happy October!

Welcome to October, everybody! It’s always been my favorite month. I love the gorgeous changing leaves; the crisp, cool weather; and those cozy early nights that start with orangey, autumny sunsets and that unmistakable scent of fall-turning-to-winter in the air.

There are lots of other things to celebrate in October too. And Lerner has a book for them all! Here’s a look at October holidays and special days, and a book to help you celebrate each one:

October 1 was World Vegetarian Day. Yes, we’ve passed it, but as a vegetarian myself, I just couldn’t let this one slip by without a mention. (Smiles!)
