When we think of October, we think about things like candy corn, pumpkins, fun-sized chocolate bars (or full-sized if you go to the rich people houses) and, of course, Halloween. What if I told you each of these things had their own special day dedicated to their celebration? Here is a list of some of the national days coming up this month!
