October’s child is born for woe,

And life’s vicissitudes must know

But lay an Opal on her breast,

 

And hope will lull those woes to rest.

~Traditional English Proverb

October is the 8th month of the Roman calendar, Winterfilleð is the Saxon name.The Irish called it Deireadh Fomhair. The Frankish name, Windurmanoth, means `vintage month’. Asatru name is Hunting.

Weather lore of October: the more bright red berries (haws and hips) that can be seen in the hedgerows, the more frost and snow there will be the next Winter.

Birth flowers: Calendula and cosmos.

Birthstone: Opal, signifying hope. Said to bring bad luck to those not born in this month who wear it, probably because the properties of opal are to increase whatever you are feeling. Balanced Libras can handle this, but in less restrained signs, it creates extremes.

Tomorrow, Thursday, October 31st, will be National Caramel Apple Day,

Carve a Pumpkin Day (although it can be argued that this should have been done earlier), it’s Halloween, Alllantide, Allan Apple Day, All Hallows Eve, Apple & Candle Night, Beggar’s Night, Books for Treats Day, Crack Nut night/Nut-Crack Night,

Hallowmas, UNICEF Day, Scare a Friend Day, Increase Your Psychic Powers Day, National Knock Knock Jokes day, National Magic Day (for Houdini), World Savings Day,

Reformation Day, and Sneak Some of the Candy Yourself Before the Kids Start Knocking Day. It’s also the Day of the Seven Billion, Girl Scout Founder Day, and it’s Samhain in the Northern Hemisphere, and Beltane in the Southern Hemisphere. The last Thursday of October is Punky Night- the beginning of the Halloween Season, so it seems a bit unfair to have it be on Halloween, making the season one day. I am not sure how this is officially handled, but I think it must have been last Thursday.
