October Is SO Much More Than Just Trick-Or-Treating

October's 31 Days Hold SO Much More Than Just Trick-Or-Treating

If you aren't crazy about sports and pumpkin spice then you need to take this month of October off, but just in case you can't October has something for everybody.


October has finally bestowed upon us and we are now at the peak moments of the year. Pumpkin spice cravings can now be satisfied. We have a great excuse for eating copious amounts of candy and dressing up without being looked at weirdly. The month of October not only begins the stretch of Holidays, but it hosts some of the most important people's birthdays, like myself (October 1st).

October also boasts the best time of the year for sports fans. Whether you are watching MLB, NBA, NHL, NFL or NCAAF there is always a massive amount of sports options to watch. (I think this is the reason why there are more TVs in houses than there are people that live there.) It also begins the real test for college football teams around the nation.

October sets up the rivalry games, ticket prices, and playoff standings. The first official college football playoff ranking is on October 30th if you were wondering. Teams will be put through the test as the weather starts to get colder and the season begins to drag on.

The joy of basketball is also brought to us during October. The NBA preseason has already started and given us more than enough to talk about and the season doesn't start until October 17th. (How about those Lakers huh?)

How about a little World Series baseball? I'm not a big baseball fan, but I always observe one thing during the baseball season. Nobody and I mean, nobody goes to the games at any time of the year. Except for when October rolls around and the World Series is about to start. (If you don't believe me just look at the stands in October compared to any other month).

If you aren't crazy about sports and pumpkin spice then you need to take this month of October off, but just in case you can't October has something for everybody.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, so get your pink on and save the tatas. (Also #FreeTheNipple). October is also National Pizza month so indulge to your heart's desire (or when you begin to have stomach aches).

Surely, the month of October sparks the greatest time of the year for us all. During the month go out and have you some pumpkin spice, trick or treat, and sit back, relax with the family and enjoy all that October has to offer.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
