Oodles of Reasons to Send Cards this October

Each month seems to fly by lately – I hope you are making the best use of each one of yours. October is almost here already – along with its usual holiday celebrations like Halloween, Columbus Day, and Fire Safety Week. Instead of sharing more about these well-known holidays, I tracked down a few “different” holidays that might be the perfect occasion for you to send a card with Totally Awesome Cards this October. There are some sayings or quotes under each special day – some of the quotes are well-known and others are not – but each one could be used in special cards to send out to those you care about. As you send cards this month, take some time to personalize them before you send them because it can bring an even brighter smile to the faces of those who receive them. Have fun and happy card sending!

Get Organized Week – October 1-7

“Organization is not an option; it is a fundamental survival skill and distinct competitive advantage.”
Pam N. Woods

“Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up.”
A.A. Milne

“Bottom line is, if you do not use it or need it, its clutter, and it needs to go.”
Charisse Ward

National Frugal Fun Day – October 2

“Beware of little expenses; a small leak will sink a great ship”
— Benjamin Franklin

“He who does not economize will have to agonize”
— Confucius

“Without frugality none can be rich, and with it very few would be poor.”
— Samuel Johnson

Canadian Thanksgiving Day – October 11 (Don’t forget your Friends North of the US!)

“Thanksgiving Day is a jewel, to set in the hearts of honest men; but be careful that you do not take the day, and leave out the gratitude.”
E.P. Powell

“What we’re really talking about is a wonderful day set aside on the fourth Thursday of November when no one diets. I mean, why else would they call it Thanksgiving?”
Erma Bombeck

“He who thanks but with the lips
Thanks but in part;
The full, the true Thanksgiving
Comes from the heart.”
J.A. Shedd

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!

Bring Your Teddy Bear to Work or School Day – October 13

“In a world where everyone seems to be larger and louder than yourself, it is very comforting to have a small, quiet companion.”
Author Unknown

“Bears sleep by day. At night they stay awake to chase away bad dreams.”
Jesse O’Neil

“To a child, Teddy is a bridge between a human and an animal. He doesn’t mind being dressed in ridiculous hats, or even being read to. You can blame him for anything, and he won’t deny it. His marvelous face expresses anything a child wants to feel or hear.”
Peter Bull

“There’s just something about a Teddy Bear that’s impossible to explain. When you hold one in your arms, you get a feeling of love, comfort and security. It’s almost supernatural.”
James Ownby

First Pack of Crayola Crayons Sold – October 23

We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box.
Robert Fulghum

Artists are just children who refuse to put down their crayons.
Al Hirschfeld

Give crayons. Adults are disturbingly impoverished of these magical dream sticks.
Dr. SunWolf

Why do two colors, put one next to the other, sing? Can one really explain this? No.
Pablo Picasso

My skin is kind of sort of brownish
Pinkish yellowish white.
My eyes are greyish bluish green,
But I’m told they look orange in the night.
My hair is reddish blondish brown,
But it’s silver when it’s wet.
And all the colors I am inside
Have not been invented yet.
Shel Silverstein

Your attitude is like a box of crayons that color your world. Constantly color your picture gray, and your picture will always be bleak. Try adding some bright colors to the picture by including humor, and your picture begins to lighten up.
Allen Klein

Microwave Oven Introduced – October 25

My family eats from all of the food groups. Fast, Frozen, Canned and Microwaveable…!!

Nobody ever follows the part of the instructions that says, ‘Let food cool in microwave for 1 to 2 minutes.

I think that school and microwave minutes are longer than regular minutes.

National Chocolate Day – October 28

“My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished 2 bags of M&M’s and a chocolate cake. I feel better already.”
Dave Barry

“Caramels are only a fad. Chocolate is a permanent thing.”
Milton Snavely Hershey

“Make a list of important things to do today. At the top of your list, put “eat chocolate.” Now, you’ll get at least one thing done today.”
Gina Hayes

“The 12-step chocoholics program: Never be more than 12 steps away from chocolate!”
Terry Moore

“There are four basic food groups: milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate, and chocolate truffles.”

“Chocolate is nature’s way of making up for Mondays.”
