Hello To October... A Month Everyone Seems To Love!

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty 179530




"In the entire circle of the year there are no days so delightful as those of a fine October."

... Alexander Smith


It seems everyone loves the month of October and looks forward to it? When I think of October I think of growing up in New York City and living there for many years of my adult life. I always said it was the most beautiful month of the year in New York... crisp, cool days with blue skies, changing colors in Central Park, the feeling in the air that anything was possible. In October, it's not too cold and it's not too hot... essentially, it's perfect! It's why I love the quote by Anonymous: "my favorite color is October."


October is a month that seems to have something for everyone... the beauty of leaves changing colors, Football Fridays, cooler weather to get back into some favorite sweaters, warms days and cool nights, Halloween fun and candy, pumpkin flavored coffee and food, apple and pumpkin picking, Fall festivals, Fall and Halloween decorating, the World Series for baseball fans, scary movies for those who love the genre!

October is also a month of lots of fun (and tasty) days to observe, such as:  Cinnamon Roll Day (October 4), National Frappe Day (October 7), International Beer & Pizza Day (October 9), National Angel Food Cake Day (October 10), my favorite: National Dessert Day (October 14), my second most favorite: National Pasta Day (October 17), National Chocolate Cupcake Day (October 18), International Day of the Nacho (October 21), Eat A Pretzel Day (October 23), National Boston Cream Pie Day (October 23), National Art Day (October 25), National Pumpkin Day (October 26), National Chocolate Day (October 28), another of my very favorite days: National Cat Day (October 29), and, of course: HALLOWEEN (October 31).


There are so many wonderful quotes about the month of October. I've listed a few of them below. Hopefully, they'll put you into that October frame of mind!


“I wish that every day was Saturday and every month was October.”

... Charmaine J Ford


“I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”

... L M Montgomery (Anne of Green Gables)


“October is the opal month of the year. It is the month of glory, of ripeness. It is the picture-month.”

... Henry Ward Beecher


“In October, a maple tree before your window lights up your room like a great lamp. Even on cloudy days, its presence helps to dispel the gloom.”

...  John Burroughs


October is crisp days and cool nights, a time to curl up around the dancing flames and sink into a good book.”

... John Sinor


“October is a symphony of permanence and change.”

... Bonaro Overstreet

We are just hoping for cooler weather so we can accomplish a few outside tasks such as painting.  One can't paint when temperatures are in the 100's. In the high desert, the changes of the seasons are more about temperatures than anything else unless one lives at 4,000' plus elevations.

Leanne Smith hi Leanne... I remember the temperatures in the 100's from when I lived in the Gulf... not fondly. People always thought it was okay because it was desert, but in fact, it was very humid.

The high desert here in AZ is yes a dry heat because rarely does the humidity exceed 35% unless it is monsoon season.

Hi Nina,

I love fall!  So October and November are my favorite months.  However, many think that the temps in Sedona mirror Phoenix, but we are anywhere from 10º to 20º cooler then central and southern AZ  We have had only 5 days over 100º since July 23rd.  How do I know this? Our HVAC went out on the first week of August. Thank God we don't live in Phoenix.  The new AC will be installed next week. 

Our 100º and 90º weather are behind us.  But I am enjoying the low 80ºs right now.  Happy October!

Hi Nina- I love October just as I love April. It signals a change into either cooler or warmer temps. I've been loving our cooler (by our standards) temps in the mornings. And I looked over all of the Special Days and I see several that are right up my alley...such as Cinnamon Roll Day, Chocolate Day and Pasta Day.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® hi Sheri... I've had an AC go out in the middle of summer... definitely not fun to live through! I'm sure you'll be thrilled when the new AC is installed.

Kathy Streib hi Kathy... same here... nice cool mornings even though it warms up by afternoon... but I like that... cool in the mornings and warm afternoons. I'm with you on the chocolate and pasta days! Two of my favorite things in the world.

Nina when I stop to think about it, October is the last full month we will see color for at least 4-5 months.  The temperatures are comfortable, before the bone chilling cold rolls in to the next 4 months, and it is a month with one of the fun holidays.  So I agree, October is a month to love.
