October Is Here & It’s Time To Get My Pumpkin Roasting!!!!

It’s October!!!  Can you smell the pumpkin yet?  I know I sure can.  In preparation for Halloween, I have decided to focus this month’s posts on anything and everything associated with the spooky season.

Movie & Book Reviews, Fall Activities, Crafts, Recipes and more……

So, let’s start the month out right with a spackling of facts.

October is the tenth month of the year and the sixth of seven months to have a length of 31 days.  It is commonly associated with the season of autumn in the Northern hemisphere and with spring in the Southern hemisphere.
