Haunted Refrigerator Night
- Who knows what evil lurks in the refrigerators of men and women? It’s time to be afraid, very afraid. Gather friends, open the refrigerator door and venture unto the realm of the lower shelf, rear. That “thing” inside that container is much more horrifying than any haunted hayride.
- In recognition of the development of the first well-known checklist, following the crash of a B-17 Flying Fortress prototype caused by pilot error on this date in 1935. Use checklists to help avoid tragedy and disappointment and take advantage of opportunities.
Create a Great Funeral Day
- A day to remind people of all the benefits of creating their own unique funerals or memorial services, regardless of age or state of health.
- Formerly a “Mischief Night” on the evening before Halloween and an occasion for harmless pranks, chiefly observed by children. However, in some areas of the US, the destruction of property and endangering of lives has led to the imposition of dusk-to-dawn curfews during the last two or three days of October.
National Forgiveness Day
- A celebration of unconditional love when people take time to repair, restore, rebuild and revive damaged relationships using the process of unconditional love and forgiveness.
International Bandanna Day
- Today is the day to wear a bandanna to work. Who cares if you are the CEO of a major corporation. CanTeen aims to sell one million bandannas this year and is encouraging everyone to take part and wear a CanTeen bandanna to show young people living with cancer that they are supported and that they are not alone.
National Candy Corn Day
- Created in the 1880s by George Renninger of the Wunderle Candy Company, the three colors of the candy are meant to mimic corn. Each piece is approximately the size of a whole kernel of corn, as if it fell off a ripe or dried ear of corn. The candy is usually tri-colored with a yellow base, orange center, and white tip, although the color combinations may vary.
"War of the Worlds" Anniversary
- As part of a series of radio dramas based on famous novels, in 1938 Orson Welles with the Mercury Players produced H.G. Wells’s War of the Worlds. Near panic resulted when listeners believed the simulated news bulletins, which described a Martian invasion of New Jersey, to be real.
