- Oct.01 is the National Homemade Cookies Day in the US and International Coffee Day all around the world

- Oct.05 is one of our favorite days! It is the Do Something Nice Day and World Teachers Day. So, make sure that you will do something nice and you will call your fav teacher ever just to tell them how much you appreciate the work and effort of their job. And to remind them how much they inspire the kids.
- Oct.06 Mad Hatter Day and you should definitely celebrate it by getting silly and wear your crazy top hat! If you are more like a foodie, then enjoy the National Noodle Day
- Oct.07 Oktoberfest in Germany ends, but you can enjoy the National Frappe Day (even though it might be a bit cold for this). It is also World Smile Day, so do not forget to have some fun too!
- Oct.08 is the National Pierogi Day in the US, but the Polish might want to celebrate it more. So, make sure you will go to a Polish restaurant or throw a Polish-themed potluck and challenge your friends and visitors to make their best pierogi.
- Oct.09 Curious Events Day and World Post Day
- Oct.10 On the health side, there is the World Mental Health Day. On the fun side, you can Take Your Teddy Bear to Work Day
- Oct.11 It is quite a serious and awareness day. So here is what you should be aware of: National Coming Out Day, National Depression Screening Day and National Pet Obesity Day. So make sure to be kind and listen to your dear ones. And take care of your pets!
- Oct.12 is National Farmers Day and you can definitely support the locals and spread the word! It is the Moment of Frustration Day too, but we hope you will not celebrate this.
- Oct.13 is more like a health day to point out Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day and World Hospice and Palliative Care Day. You can also get a bunch of colorful M&Ms and celebrate National M&M Day.
- Oct.14 National Dessert Day and yes, you can order that cake today. Twice. You can do it every day, actually.
- Oct.15 This is a great day for education! We can start with the Global Handwashing Day — even though this sounds simple, do not forget that washing hands saves lives and by doing so we are not spreading any microbes. And for the ones that love numbers, get ready for the World Maths Day!
- Oct.16 Is the National Boss’s day and the Feral cat day. A good day to say thank you to your coworker-boss and pet or save a feral cat.
- Oct.17 National Clean Your Virtual Desktop Day, to check what is with all those saved files on your desktop.
- Oct.18 No Beard Day if you want to mock the hipsters and National Chocolate Cupcake Day to make the day a bit sweeter
- Oct.19 is quite a complex day! Seems like it is a good autumn to see this Friday as the Evaluate Your Life Day, to celebrate the National Mammography Day; to get out, spread the word and celebrate the National New Friends Day and do not forget about the World Pediatric Bone and Joint Day
- Oct.20 National Day of Writing
- Oct.21 National Reptile Awareness Day and Count Your Buttons Day
