And I say that without any bias whatsoever. At least I’d like to think that October is objectively the best month ever, perhaps backed up by science and statistics and all sorts of other official things.
October is when the leaves start turning, when the weather cools down and people start breaking out their fall and winter clothes. Some of my favorite styles come out during this time of year. October is when pumpkin-flavoured-everythings can be found just about everywhere. It’s when everything starts turning orange and black, when the nights become exciting.
It’s when scary movie marathons come on TV (all the classics!) and you can sit back in your warm house, reading books by candlelight and huddling up with friends. It’s where you walk down the street to see glowing vegetables with faces on them and skeletons and ghosts hanging from doors and trees. Finally, it’s when you get to dress up as oddly as you want and go bother complete strangers for edible goods, and where you’re looked at as weird if you don’t do that.
This is also the month my birthday is in, but that’s just a small bonus.
I’ll become happy for certain times of the year, but nothing gets me to be actually excited like October. No other month will do that for me. I love the weather, the food, everything. Sure, I like Christmas, it’s okay. Thanksgiving, Easter, whatever. They’re all acceptable. I’ll keep them. But October is just awesome all month long.
One of my favorite parts of October is candy corn. It is one of my most favorite candies ever. But there’s a strange thing about this candy; people either adore it or hate it with a passion. I have only met about one person who really didn’t care about it.
So tell me your favorites! What is your favorite month? What’s your favorite candy? Do you love or hate candy corn, or are you among the ranks of the mystical apathetic?
