HISTORY OF OCTOBER
October is the tenth month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian calendars, the sixth of seven months to have a length of 31 days, and the second of five months to have a length of fewer than 30 days. October was the sixth month of the ancient Roman calendar. October retained its name (from Latin “octo,” eight) when January and February were added to the Roman calendar.
MONTH OF OCTOBER
October is the second month to have a length of 31 days and is the only month to have 31 days in common years. It is the last of seven months to have a length of 31 days (February, April, June, August, October, and December). It is also the only month (and March) to have a length of fewer than 30 days in leap years.
October is a month of transitions. Fall turns to Winter, days get shorter, kids return to school, and fall sports reach their ends. But there are still many sights to see in October while all the sunlight lasts. So here are some great seasonal activities to do while enjoying the last gasps of fall.
The birthstone for October is opal and tourmaline. Opal is a highly sought-after gem because, like no other stone, it can produce its own light. It can appear to glow from within when backlit by sunlight.
As a birthstone, opals have been used to symbolize hope, faith, and purity. In fact, the Hindu word for opal translates to “color of the sky.” And while different colors of this gemstone will mean other things behind them, it’s more common to see people using white opal pearls or amethyst-colored amulets of opal. As a result, white opal birthstones are believed to represent a sense of clarity and a call for self-belief in oneself.
