October Weird Hollidays - " Bring your teddy bear to work day"
October has always been a festive time for parties because of Halloween and so many Fall Festivals during the month. But did you know that October has some other really weird holidays that's perfect for celebrating too? Yep, everything from "Bath Tub Party Day" where party goers are encouraged to go to the extreme and pile in a large tub (most of the time it's a large water fountain or swimming pool) and splash around in bubbles while wearing shower caps and the largest yellow duck possible!

October is the tenth month of the year
in the Gregorian Calendar and one of seven Gregorian months with a length of 31 days. The eighth month in the old Roman calendar, October retained its name (from the Latin "octo" meaning "eight") when January and February were added.
October is commonly associated with the season of autumn in the Northern hemisphere and spring in the Southern hemisphere, where it is the seasonal equivalent to April in the Southern Hemisphere and vice versa.
In common years January starts on the same day of the week as October, but no other month starts on the same day of the week as October in leap years.
