October! The tenth month of the year, though originally the eighth (hence the name “octo”). It’s known as the month of sudden changes, and was termed the “yellow month’” by the Slavs because of the fading of the leaf. The ancient Europeans marked the month as the dying harvest and thus the ending of the year. October was therefore seen as a month of mysteries and dark secrets, which lends itself well to the celebrations of All Hallows Eve or Halloween.

It’s birth flower, the calendula, symbolizes grief and sorrow and is valued for it’s medicinal and culinary properties. October’s birthstone is the opal which is said to bring love, passion and stimulate emotional expression and vigor. It was believed that the opal would crack if it was worn by someone who wasn’t born in October.

October is national pizza month, squirrel awareness month as well as many other notable remembrances :D For those born in October (happy bday!) some traits are: chatty, friendly, opinionated, emotional, honest, loves travel art and literature, and is a daydreamer.

A beautiful painting. I love chrysanthemums, all of the colors, I wish we had them all of the year. The bright colors of autumn, and falling petals, as the leaves fall, and the darkness, with the witchy eyes...this painting seems to have all of October.
