It’s time for falling leaves in vibrant Crayola colors, and pumpkins and gourds of all shapes and sizes.

Time to savor hot beverages like hot spiced cider and pumpkin lattes that take the edge off the increasing chill.

It’s the month of witches and goblins and ghosts, oh my … and children begging for free sweets.

Remember doing that when you were a kid?

Don’t take it all too seriously, folks.

There are enough real-life monsters to rise up against.

Truly Spooky.

October invites us to have a little fun.

I think our individual spirits could use that seasonal tonic.

Welcome, Sweet October!

Happy Haunting to all.

Be kind witches and warlocks.

Do more good stuff. Not more harm.

What do you love most about October?
