Originating in North America during the 2000s, zombie walks have occurred throughout the world. Source

International Skeptics Day
- Skeptics just won't see or accept what's a given, what is believed by the majority of the people based on scientific scrutiny. Someone who, without straightforward, tangible, right in your face proof, refuses to believe in any number of things.

It's Train Your Brain Day
- Did you know that just like how you lose muscle mass with age, your brain function begins to decrease when you reach maturity? This happens even if you lead a normal, healthy life.

US Navy Founded
- The U.S. Navy was founded on 13 October 1775, when the Second Continental Congress passed a resolution creating the Continental Navy. With the end of the American Revolutionary War, the Continental Navy was disbanded.

National Yorkshire Pudding Day
- not meant to be some sort of serious nationalistic statement with sinister undertones. It is merely a day set aside when everyone, be they British or not, can remember, enjoy and celebrate the joys of an age-old recipe.

International Day for Reduction of Natural Disasters
- annually observed on the second Wednesday of October to raise the profile of disaster risk reduction. It also encourages people and governments to participate in building more resilient communities and nations.

About Catherine: I have been writing frugal tips since 1982, when I was a young divorced mom of two - for my baby product company, Born to Love. I am now mom to three sons, who are all grown up, grandma to three - and happily re-married to a wonderful man. We have rescued two little dogs, Denny and Dexter - and a cat, Bella.
