Naming October - The Eighth Month

October is the tenth month of the year in the Julian and

Gregorian calendars and has a length of 31 days.  The

month kept its original name from the Roman calendar in

which octo means “eight” in Latin marking it the

eight month of the year.

October was named during a time when the calendar

year began with March, which is why its name no

longer corresponds with its placement in the

Julian and Gregorian calendars.

History of October

October was originally the eighth month of

the Roman calendar. It always had a length of 31

days and became the tenth month of the year

when King Numa Pompilius reformed the calendar

and added the months of January and February around 700 BCE.

Position in the Year

 It is commonly linked with the autumn season

in the Northern Hemisphere and spring in the

Southern Hemisphere. Its seasonal equivalent

is April in the Northern Hemisphere.

October starts on the same day of the week as

January in common years, but does not start on

the same day of the week as any other month

in leap years. October ends on the same day of

the week as February every year and January in common years only.


October's birth flower is the calendula.

The birthstone for October is the opal and it is said that

the opal will crack if it is worn by someone who was not born in October.

I believe there is a daily need for one to
be reminded to live a life full of hope.

In quiet moments when you think about it,

you recognize what is critically important in life and

what isn't. Be wise and don't let good things

crowd out those that are essential.

These pictures I post are not to make one sad - rather to take you back
in time to your childhood or a Sunday drive that stirred good memories
and when life seemed somewhat simple but yet maybe difficult? They make
me feel appreciative to all the fine things I have today.
